As Multiple Sclerosis progresses, it can make daily life more difficult than it should be for an Elder or Senior loved one who lives alone. MS has different symptoms for each individual in terms of onset and severity, but they generally affect the individual’s cognitive, physical, and behavioral functioning. To put it briefly, Multiple Sclerosis affects the nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord by causing degeneration of the insulating substance of nerve cells called myelin that is essential for the nerve cells to communicate and conduct electrical impulses. The demyelination leads to scarring in the affected area and neurological symptoms.
MS can cause blurry vision, difficulty moving, difficulty with balance, and coordination, fatigue, chronic pain, bladder and bowel issues, unstable moods, and in late stages can cause complete paralysis, problems with speech, and difficulty swallowing.
At A-1 Home Care, we provide in-home Multiple Sclerosis Care on a 24 hour Live-In or Hourly Care basis. We know it can be difficult finding the time to provide assistance for your Elder or Senior loved one with activities of daily living and personal care, which is where an experienced and dedicated caregiver can help.
All of our MS caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have at least 2 years prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.
