Compassionate MS Caregivers for Elderly and Seniors
Elderly or Senior individuals with Multiple Sclerosis may experience a range of physical and cognitive disabilities over time. The disease affects the nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord by damaging the axons’ ability to send electrical signals effectively. The axons are essentially highways between the brain and spinal cord and with MS, the body’s immune system attacks the insulating substance myelin in which the axons are contained. As more myelin is destroyed, the axons are less able to conduct electrical signals and the individual experiences neurological symptoms.
If your Elderly or Senior loved one has Multiple Sclerosis, compassionate and dedicated care is necessary as the disease progresses and your loved one experiences symptoms that interfere with daily living. Some MS symptoms include muscle weakness, difficulty in moving, fatigue, chronic pain, incontinence, unstable moods, double vision, and slurred speech that occur in worsening relapse attacks or steady progression over time.
At A-1 Home Care, we provide Multiple Sclerosis Care for Elders and Seniors on a 24 hour Live-In Care of Hourly Care basis so that ease with activities of daily living and safety will be ensured. Our experienced caregivers can assist with a variety of tasks that range from basic companionship to assistance with mobility, meal preparation, and daily range of motion exercises to help keep your loved one’s muscles and joints limber.
All of our compassionate MS caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have 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.
