Multiple Sclerosis Care

What Is Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis is a condition that can affect the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide range of potential symptoms, including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation, or balance. It’s a lifelong condition that can sometimes cause serious disability, although it can occasionally be mild. It’s most commonly diagnosed in people in their 20s, 30s and 40s, although it can develop at any age. In many cases, it’s possible to treat symptoms.

At A Star Care, we understand that each person’s experience with multiple sclerosis is different. Our team of experienced professionals works closely with you to create a personalised live-in MS care plan that addresses your specific needs, challenges and special requests.

The Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

Depending on the type of Multiple Sclerosis you have, your symptoms may come and go in phases or get steadily worse over time. The symptoms of MS vary widely from person to person and can affect any part of the body.

The main symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty walking
  • Vision problems, such as blurred vision
  • Problems controlling the bladder.
  • Numbness or tingling in various parts of the body
  • Muscle stiffness and spasms
  • Problems with balance and coordination
  • Problems with thinking, learning, and planning

The Causes of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune condition. This is when something goes wrong with the immune system, and it mistakenly attacks a healthy part of the body – in this case, the brain or spinal cord of the nervous system. In MS, the immune system attacks the layer that surrounds and protects the nerves called the Myelin Sheath. This damages and scars the sheath and potentially the underlying nerves, meaning that messages travelling along the nerves become slowed or disrupted.

Managing Your MS Symptoms In The Comfort Of Your Home

There’s currently no cure for MS, but a few treatments can help control the condition and ease symptoms. The treatment you need will depend on the specific symptoms and difficulties you have. Many therapies aiming to treat progressive MS are currently being researched.

MS can be a challenging condition to live with so, it’s important to take care of your general health. At A Star Care Services, we provide specialist Multiple Sclerosis home care.

We know that staying at home and receiving one-to-one care from a highly trained and compassionate carer significantly improves the quality of life for those with MS. We will assess your needs, create a care, and support plan to accommodate you and your loved ones.
