If you or a loved one live with Multiple Sclerosis then you’ll likely understand the complex care needs arising from the disease. Apollo Care provides for these needs through offering a complex care package designed to meet the needs of customers suffering from the disease. We offer a multi-disciplinary team who works closely with Multiple Sclerosis sufferers and their families. Our service means our customers suffering with Multiple Sclerosis are able to live independently in the comfort of their own home for as long as is possible.
Around 100,000 people suffer from Multiple Sclerosis in the United Kingdom. Multiple Sclerosis is an auto-immune disease. The immune system attacks the myelin sheath around nerve fibres. In turn this prevents messages from traveling from the brain down to the rest of the body.
How we are able to help
Our Multiple Sclerosis care support aims to halt the progression of the disease. A list of tasks our carers provide include:
- Help with medications
- Help with therapies
- Personal care
- Assistance with household chores
Our service ensures those living with Multiple Sclerosis maintain a high quality of living. Our service does not merely end with home care. We provide companionship services meaning our customers are not required to spend the entire day at home. This includes trips to the shops, events and various day care centres throughout Merseyside.
Multiple Sclerosis respite care
We work closely with Multiple Sclerosis sufferers’ family. Care plans are designed to fit around the schedules of family members. We also offer respite care for Multiple Sclerosis sufferers. This ensures family members recharge their batteries every now and then in order to provide a better level of overall care.
