Muscular dystrophy is a set of muscle disorders causing tissue loss in the muscles as well as skeletal muscle weakness. It is typically hereditary and often affects children, though adults may also develop the condition. Loss of range of motion, spinal curvature, heart disease, lung issues, and mental health issues are associated with this degenerative condition.

Patients with muscular dystrophy often require assistance with daily activities in order to maintain their independence and health. A skilled caregiver can visit your home to help with necessary tasks which keep you or your loved one safe and comfortable at home. Caregivers offer support to patients as well as their families, working to improve your overall wellbeing.

We want to make sure that our clients are comfortable with their caregivers.

The companionship and conversation which result from a caregiving relationship have positive effects on your wellbeing, and we want every client to make the most of the time they spend with our staff.

  • After being admitted to the hospital for so long, I just didn’t feel ready to be on my own yet. Independent Life connected me with caregivers who provided the home care I needed to manage my recovery and keep my house in order. I welcomed having someone to chat with regularly, and felt safer knowing someone was there when I was not yet back to my best self. I’d certainly recommend their home care services to anyone facing a lengthy recovery.

  • Dad really struggled to stay active after Mom passed, I think he felt a bit burdened by all he had to do. His caregiver stepped in to assist with household chores and to help him with his needs, and I think that made quite a difference in improving his quality of life. That companionship and mental stimulation seemed to help him carry on, doing the things he loved.

  • I’ve always been independent, but I’m a realist as well. I recognized I was having trouble with certain things, so I got to work searching for a solution which would help me stay healthy, happy, and in the Las Vegas home I love. I contracted senior care services with Independent Life Home Care, and was able to choose the services I need. It’s great having someone to help me with the tasks that have become difficult, and I also welcome the conversation and company of my caregiver each week.

  • If you are caring for a loved one at home, don’t forget that you need time to care for yourself, too! Respite care is a must so that you can take care of your needs. I trust Independent Life to care for my son when I have important appointments to attend, and when I need time to recharge.

  • I cannot thank Independent Life Home Care enough for the compassionate hospice care they provided during my husband’s final days. It was a tremendous comfort to have someone dependable to rely on so that I could spend those last moments with him.
