Multiple Sclerosis In-Home Care in Fullerton, CA
Multiple Sclerosis is a degenerative disease that has a broad range of symptoms that affect the individual’s cognitive and physical functioning. Multiple Sclerosis affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate effectively with each other. The body’s immune system damages an insulating substance called myelin in which axons are contained, and this affects the axon’s ability to conduct signals.
Symptoms of MS vary between people, and can occur in discrete relapse attacks where new symptoms can further the progression of the disease or symptoms of the disease accumulate over time in a progressive manner. People with MS may suffer from loss of sensitivity, muscle weakness, difficulty moving, problems with coordination and balance, speech and swallowing problems, vision problems, fatigue, incontinence, chronic pain, and behavioral changes.
If your Elderly or Senior loved one has Multiple Sclerosis, activities of daily living can become increasingly difficult and dangerous. Simple tasks such as walking or completing daily chores can create fall risk hazards because of mobility issues.
