Multiple Sclerosis Care in Downey, CA
Experienced Caregivers for Inflammatory Diseases
Multiple Sclerosis is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system that causes degeneration of the insulating substance of nerve cells called myelin. When myelin degenerates, it causes demyelination and scarring in the affected area that makes it difficult for the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively. This can lead to symptoms in the affected individual that occur in unpredictable relapse attacks that become increasingly worse with each attack or the disease can steadily progress over time.
MS symptoms may include loss of sensitivity, numbness, muscle weakness, muscle stiffness, coordination and balance issues, chronic pain, fatigue, speech problems, swallowing problems, vision problems, bladder and bowel issues, and mood swings.
When an Elderly loved one has MS, activities of daily living can become difficult, especially with symptoms that have progressed considerably. A-1 Home Care provides dedicated in-home Multiple Sclerosis Care on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis. Our caregivers can assist with personal care, daily errands, meal preparation, exercise, medication reminders, and any instructions from family members or family/therapists.
Our Multiple Sclerosis 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.
