San Mateo, CA (Grassroots Newswire) 3/1/13 -- March is National MS Education & Awareness Month and SYNERGY HomeCare of San Mateo is pleased to join the effort to bring further public awareness to this debilitating disease.
Classified as an autoimmune disease, multiple sclerosis (MS) occurs whenthe nerves of the brain and spinal cord are damaged as a result of the body’s immune system mistakenly attacking normal tissue. According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, MS begins in early to middle adulthood and is the most frequent cause of neurological disability, with the exception of trauma.
"We witness how living with MS can be challenging for our clients because of the unpredictable nature of the disease," said Peter Tourian, founder and CEO of SYNERGY HomeCare. "Our caregivers are trained to support clients and their families no matter the severity of symptoms and provide care that offersa sense of normalcy to everyday life."
More than 400,000 people in the United States are affected by MS and SYNERGY HomeCare of San Mateo understands the impact it can have on a family. Since symptoms vary widely with MS, SYNERGY HomeCare develops specialized care plans based on individual need and severity of symptoms in order to help clients cope with activities of daily living made more challenging by MS.
For clients with limited mobility due to MS, caregivers can prepare nutritious meals, perform various household tasks, assist with personal hygiene/appearance and help with transfers from bed to wheelchair. During periods of remission, SYNERGY HomeCare caregivers can also provide companionship care such as friendly and supportive conversation, light exercise and transportation to doctor’s appointments or social events.
