While life expectancy is somewhat normal, living with a chronic autoimmune disease like multiple sclerosis is not. This condition has affected their brain and spinal cord. Because their immune system has mistaken their nerve coating, myelin, as a disease and attacked it. Now they're left with scars and a range of symptoms. Where they were once strong and able, they have now been left with reduced function and ability.
It makes life complicated and difficult.
Everyday tasks we take for granted become challenging. Although, some can be adjusted; door handles, bathrooms, appliances and switches can be modified, while others cannot. It's not always easy.
The damage disrupting bodily messages can slow down, become distorted, or not get through at all. Their daily life will have already been adapted but with specialist multiple sclerosis home care assistance, your loved one can lead a long, active, healthy life.
According to the NHS, multiple sclerosis home care services can benefit them enormously. While being supported to care for themselves, they can live longer, have a better quality of life, and be more active and independent.1 We can help them take responsibility for their health and wellbeing.
Undoubtedly, your family member still has the desire to maintain their independence in their own home, just like everyone else.

They may have developed speech difficulties or memory problems. Nevertheless, the option to stay at home will be welcome.

As a result of care at home, your loved one will receive one-to-one multiple sclerosis support and assistance in their comfortable homely environment. With a one-on-one carer, there is a choice - To promote independence. To be in control. To uphold their dignity. To receive professional aid when required and have all of their needs met by a dedicated carer.
On the other hand, a care home can be an option. However, few care homes provide specialist care for MS. Especially for younger people. And there's a concern whether a specialist care home can offer a place to a younger adult through to old age.
Nonetheless, they may be a young adult. They may be elderly... Whatever their circumstance, for a superior quality of life, there's a choice. With this choice, your loved one can remain independent and happy in their own home.
With that in mind, some additional changes to your home may be required. But not to worry, because there is funding available. The costs for specialist equipment and changes to your home may be picked up by your council through social care services. Smaller expenses are often covered for ramps and rails and hoists.
Although, larger costs and changes to your home such as a stairlift or walk-in shower can be applied for through your local council's disabled facilities grant or the scheme of assistance if you're in Scotland.
Ultimately, your family member's specialist MS home care and assistance enables them to continue living independently. Through support from a professional, experienced and trained, live-in carer, they'll still be able to enjoy the activities and social gatherings they love. This dedicated person living with your family helps to improve your loved one's quality of life. While they will develop a deep understanding and connection that allows your carer to deliver exceptional service.
Therefore, your loved one is happy and safe in the comfort of their own home. That way, they can go on enjoying life as part of your community. While everything they need is delivered through multiple sclerosis live-in care so they can continue their way of life.
