MS Care and ALS Care
People with MS or ALS have options to remain safe and comfortable at home and receive the care they need!
We acknowledge how incredibly overwhelming and distressing a diagnosis like this can be for our clients. Whether your loved ones are facing Multiple Sclerosis (MS) or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), our caregivers can offer support, encouragement, and a friendly hand to hold.
Home care is important with a diagnosis of MS or ALS to help manage some of the following symptoms:
- Visual-spatial abilities weakened (e.g. driving).
- Problems with abstract reasoning
- Slower information processing capabilities
- Short term memory loss
- Drastic changes in gait
- Dizziness, difficulty maintaining balance
- Brain atrophy (detected via MRI)
- Bowel dysfunction
- Bladder dysfunction
The caregivers appointed to carry out the care of your loved ones are explicitly trained in addressing the symptoms that come along with MS and ALS. Whether it be within the home or in the hospital, we can offer a helping hand. Our care is available on a flexible basis and can be modified at any time as needs change.
