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.
