My sister also has MS and I am giving her a camera for Christmas.  I am thinking more along the lines of a superzoom like Canon SX40 because it is larger and easier to hold.  I will also be giving her a table top mount for it.  Her mobility is limited, she uses a walker, but the long zoom would allow her to photograph birds and animals from her window.  The OP is able to use disposable film cameras okay, so she is probably better off than my sister and able to hold smaller cameras and operate smaller buttons.

The one thing I am unsatisfied with the SX40 is the smaller display than some other comparable cameras since my sister's eyesight is not the best (I think that is also MS related although I am not sure.)
