Home Care for Multiple Sclerosis
A patient with multiple sclerosis may require home care assistance. Services in the home may include providing assistance with personal hygiene if the patient is too weak or incapacitated. Patients who have recently been released from the hospital may need help with medication compliance, catheter management, or a daily exercise regimen. A home care professional can also help with daily living activities including meal preparation, bathing, dressing, and light housekeeping.
