What is Multiple Sclerosis Home Care?

Our Multiple Sclerosis Home Care service provides professional support to help you or your loved one remain at home and improve quality of life.

If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), you may find additional support is needed at home. Multiple Sclerosis can affect a person’s mobility, vision and cognitive function, making everyday tasks challenging.

A diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis can be life changing, not just for the person but also for their loved ones. We’re here to help as much or as little as you need. We support you or your loved one to lead a meaningful life surrounded by the comforts of home.

Choosing MS Home Care allows you or your loved one to remain in a familiar environment while remaining as independent as possible with the right level of support.

Find your local Alina Homecare Team today to discuss care needs and find out how we can support you or your loved one with Multiple Sclerosis.

Consistency and familiarity are vital factors to consider when choosing the right care option for you.

Live-in Care for MS

If you or your loved one are experiencing symptoms severe enough to require continuous care, it may be worth considering Live-in Care for Multiple Sclerosis. With this service, a Care Worker moves into the home to provide care and assistance. We try to find a Live-in Carer who is a good fit for you. You or your loved one will spend a great deal of time with them so it’s important you get on well and have things in common.

Respite Care for MS

If you care for a loved one who has Multiple Sclerosis, finding time for yourself can often feel impossible. Our Home Care Workers can offer caregivers respite and regular time off for themselves. If you’re a primary caregiver, this allows you to take a well deserved break, knowing your loved one’s needs are being taken care of by a professional. If you choose Respite Care, our Care Workers fit into your regular routine.

About Multiple Sclerosis

What is Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive condition that affects the brain and spinal cord. Sadly, there is no cure. This means the level of support required by you or your loved one is likely to increase over time. We tailor our MS Home Care plans to your individual needs, constantly reviewing them to ensure we continue to meet your requirements as and when they change.

It’s estimated that more than 130,000 people are diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in the UK and it’s believed to affect three times more women than men.1 Often, people who are first diagnosed with MS are relatively young, with the initial diagnosis in their 30s to 50s.

Currently, it’s not known exactly what causes Multiple Sclerosis. Research suggests it could be caused by a variety of factors, including genes, environment and lifestyle choices.

Although there currently isn’t a cure for Multiple Sclerosis, it can be managed with treatments and the help of specialists. Home Care Workers can help guide you or your loved one through the symptoms of MS to improve quality of life. Our Care Workers can be a highly valuable addition to your or your loved one’s Care Team when help at home is needed.

What are the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis?

Depending on the severity of the condition, people with MS can experience different symptoms. Common symptoms include:

  • Fatigue

This is not to be confused with simply feeling tired. Those with Multiple Sclerosis will often feel completely exhausted and find simple tasks difficult or impossible to carry out. Our Home Care Workers can support you or your loved one by completing everyday tasks around the home, such as preparing a meal or feeding a pet.

  • Numbness and tingling

Various parts of the body, often the arms, legs and torso, can feel numb or the person with MS may experience a tingling sensation.

  • Muscle spasms/stiffness

Some people with MS experience muscle contractions, stiffness or general weakness, which can result in reduced mobility. Staying physically active has real health benefits and our Care Workers can assist with regular exercise such as walking or other exercises at home.

  • Problems with vision

Many people with Multiple Sclerosis experience deterioration in their eyesight, predominantly blurred vision. However, in 25% of cases, the person diagnosed with MS can experience a complete loss of vision, colour blindness, pain in their eyes, or flashes and double vision.2 Our Care Workers can help so household tasks don’t become overwhelming when you or your loved one is restricted by vision impairment.

  • Difficulty controlling the bladder/bowel

Constipation is a common issue, as well as problems passing urine, such as the need to urinate more frequently. Our Care Workers can help with Personal Care, including bathing and help using the bathroom if needed. Whatever you need, they always deliver it with kindness and sensitivity whilst ensuring your or your loved one’s dignity is maintained.

  • Mental health issues

Those living with Multiple Sclerosis are more susceptible to periods of anxiety or depression. You may notice those with MS have more frequent mood swings. This can be incredibly difficult for loved ones to witness or manage. Having a friendly face to help them is often crucial and our Care Workers are ready to offer a helping hand.

  • Difficulties thinking and forgetfulness

As Multiple Sclerosis affects the brain, often this causes difficulty thinking clearly. As a result, this could make everyday tasks more difficult. Our Care at Home Team can support you or your loved one by providing necessary reassurances and reminders.

  • Unexplained pain

A symptom of Multiple Sclerosis includes frequently experiencing unexplained pain; the pain can be directly caused by the condition or as a consequence of other symptoms. We provide caring and compassionate support as you and your family navigate the difficulties of Multiple Sclerosis.
