Multiple Sclerosis is incurable and can be debilitating but with the right care, some sufferers can manage to lead relatively independent lives. After suffering the symptoms of multiple sclerosis for more than 20 years, 49-year-old Emirati Darwish set a goal for himself that most take for granted: standing up on his own two feet with no support. Between the struggles and successes on the journey to achieving his aim, Darwish reached his milestone in under one month thanks to a customized post-acute rehabilitation programme developed especially for patients with MS.
“I have improved 85 per cent since I’ve been at Amana Healthcare,” says Darwish. Amana Healthcare specializes in long-term acute care, post-acute rehabilitation and home healthcare services.
