Expert care that lets you live life to the full
Continue to live well in the comfort of your own home
There are many types of Multiple Sclerosis, from relapsing remitting MS to benign MS. Symptoms are wide ranging and no two people’s experiences are the same.
This is why our carers are trained to offer the best care that they can relevant to the symptoms being experienced. They know how to recognise and support the many and varied signs and symptoms of MS such as fluctuating mobility, sensory and continence changes, speech and swallowing difficulties as well as cognition problems and pain management. It’s the expertise our clients need to help them live as independently as possible in the familiar surroundings of their own home.

Christies Care in action - real life stories
Ruth worked as a hairdresser and a dinner lady. She was a keen horse rider and loved sketching and drawing. Juggling motherhood and work was naturally difficult but very fulfilling.
Ruth was diagnosed with MS after she gave birth to her first son. For many years there were no symptoms at all and she had a second son and thought that maybe the doctors had misdiagnosed, or the illness had gone away. The first sign that the MS was progressing came when she started tripping up kerbs and over time little things like everyday household chores were becoming harder.
Driving became impossible as the illness progressed and it was hard for her to accept that the things she loved to do had become a thing of the past. Her younger son cared for her at first, though as the MS progressed she felt she had become a burden and it was especially difficult as she came to require more personal care. As Ruth’s condition progressed she and her family decided full-time MS care was needed. With a Christies Care home care package in place, Ruth is able to remain in the home she and her family love and enjoys a more dignified and independent lifestyle.
Lorenza, one of Ruth’s carers says, “She is a lovely lady, who still has so much to give and although her illness has taken much away from her, she still retains an incomparable sense of humour and a love for life that she lives to the full.”
How we care for MS
People living with Multiple Sclerosis usually require flexible care, whether that’s full-time or temporary, and so our care programme is tailored to individual requirements.
We comprehensively assess each client to ensure that their care plan is relevant to the symptoms they are experiencing. We also offer practical advice to reduce the anxiety and stress many of the symptoms of MS can cause. For example, by keeping the environment even and temperate we can help reduce muscle stiffness and inflammation.
