Why Home Care?
In-Home Caregivers for MS Elders and Seniors
Multiple Sclerosis is a degenerative disease of the central nervous system that can create complications that occur in unpredictable, worsening relapse attacks or steadily progress over time. The disease destroys communication between the brain, spinal cord, and other parts of the body because nerve cells lose their ability to conduct electrical signals when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the nerve cells’ insulating substance called myelin.
People with MS may experience symptoms such as difficulty moving, coordination and balance problems, fatigue, chronic pain, incontinence, speech and swallowing issues, blurry vision, depression, and problems with thinking or memory. When you have an Elderly or Senior loved one with Multiple Sclerosis, you know that activities of daily living may have become more difficult for your loved one and are going to become even more difficult over time. As it becomes more difficult for your loved one to care for themselves, safety issues can become a serious concern.
At A-1 Home Care, we provide compassionate and experienced Multiple Sclerosis caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers on a 24 Hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis. No matter how debilitating your loved one’s symptoms are at the moment, our caregivers can provide the right amount of care that isn’t too invasive and allows your loved one to retain their independence without losing their dignity.
All of our MS caregivers, nurse aides, home helpers, and companions must have at least 2 years of 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.
