What is multiple sclerosis?

At Cherished Home Care we provide bespoke multiple sclerosis care designed specifically to meet your needs. We may be new, but our sister companies The Good Care Group and Oxford Aunts have collectively been providing care for over 50 years. Their knowledge and expertise will be shared with us to build upon our existing understanding and delivered directly to you.

There are many different symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis (MS), with the most common being fatigue, difficulty walking, blurred vision and muscle stiffness. This can vary from each individual and could come and go in phases or worsen over time. A comprehensive approach is taken to help manage your side effects to ensure that you live well with the condition and have the choice to remain as independent as possible.

The age of diagnosis for MS can be younger in comparison to other complex conditions, so the thought of moving into residential care can be a challenging experience for both you and your loved one. Receiving care from the comfort of your own home, where you have the choice to decide how you want to spend your day can have far more reaching benefits and improve overall health outcomes.

Different types of multiple sclerosis care

Hourly care

Visiting care by the hour

Multiple sclerosis care can be provided to you on an hourly basis. This flexible option can consist of visits from as little as one hour a day, three times a week depending on your needs. When visiting, they can support you with administering medication, physical therapy, home adaptations and personal care.

Live-in Care

Live-in care

Around-the-clock care for you

If you are living with MS and your symptoms worsen over time, one of our carers can reside within your home to provide you with around-the-clock support. This is a more suitable option for individuals who are at the advanced stages of a condition and require 24-hour care. Our team can support you on a rotational basis to ensure that you are taken care of at all times.

Respite care

Short-term care for you

Temporary care, whether provided by a live-in or hourly carer, is tailored for short-term needs. It is a favoured option for individuals recently discharged from hospital or when a family caregiver is taking a respite break. This arrangement allows your primary caregiver the chance to take a break, ensuring they can sustain their support for you.

Costs of multiple sclerosis care

The cost of home care is typically comparable to, and sometimes more economical than relocating to residential care. Our services offer an added benefit, by ensuring continuity of care by having the same carer to visit you, over a longer period of time. That way trusted relationships can be built for both you and your loved ones.

Our live-in care is available from £1,445 per week, and our hourly care starts from £29 per hour. A detailed estimate of the price will be determined once you receive your free home care assessment, conducted by one of our local care managers.

We are also one of the few providers to refund our set up fee once care has been received for four weeks.

If you wish to get in touch, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team. They are available to answer any questions and guide you in the right direction.
