Multiple Sclerosis Carer

Why could a multiple sclerosis carer be the best option for me?

Managing a condition such as multiple sclerosis is a lifelong journey. When you are first diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, you may be able to manage your symptoms mostly on your own, you might find that you require someone to lean on as your symptoms persist. Having someone who specialises in multiple sclerosis support at home will mean that you have someone with you who has hands on experience and knowledge about ways in which you can continue to live independently, on your own terms. Working with you and your loved ones, your multiple sclerosis carer will assist you in developing ways in which you are able to continue living your life as independently as possible, whilst managing your multiple sclerosis symptoms.

When we hire our experienced multiple sclerosis carers there are some important qualities we look for in all our carers. We believe some of the many aspects good carer should have is being respectful, patient, reliable and qualified.

Our multiple sclerosis carers must be respectful, you may find yourself not being able to do everything you used to be able to do and people may start to treat you in a patronising way, we ensure our carers will treat you with the respect you deserve at all times.

A good carer must also be patient, with multiple sclerosis it can be frustrating when everyday tasks take longer than usual. It is important that your carer is patient and calm without getting annoyed or flustered.

A carer should be reliable, as your age or condition progresses you may need to start relying on your carer for more important aspects such as taking you to doctor’s appointments or medication dispensing. Your carer must ensure every duty is completed and they are done properly and on time.

Being observant is a key aspect of what makes a good carer. You or your loved one may not notice certain symptoms becoming more and more frequent. However, it is up to your disability carer at home to notice these things and act accordingly. Along with being observant, your carer must also be compassionate. With you or your loved one starting to deteriorate, it can be a very emotional and scary time, having a carer there to support you and be there to pick you up on your bad days is very important.

Multiple sclerosis carers are also a source of emotional support and friendship so no matter what you or your family member is going through, you will know they have someone standing by their side.

As their needs evolve and change, the care can evolve with you, so while you may start with someone popping in a few times a week, you may find that you gradually require more and more help which could be a sign you may need to look at getting someone full time.

How can a multiple sclerosis carer improve my quality of life?

Employing a carer to assist with your multiple sclerosis is the perfect solution for those who feel as though they are not quite ready to leave their beloved family home but find themselves increasingly relying on friends or family to assist with aspects of their daily life.
