Frequently asked questions

Multiple Sclerosis, commonly referred to as MS, is a condition that affects the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide range of potential symptoms. It’s a lifelong condition with wide ranging symptoms.

All our care and support workers complete the nationally-recognised care certificate. Specific client needs-led training is taught by internal and external trainers and/or healthcare professionals. We also have an internal ‘Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness and Management’ training programme, covering:

• Awareness of MS
• Person-centred MS care and support
• Promoting self-management

We work with local and national MS organisations and our training company to continually appraise and enhance our training to make sure we are supporting you in the best way possible.

All our care plans are unique to each person, so if your symptoms or needs change we will work with you to adjust your care plan to adjust any change.

Though there is currently no cure for MS, modern medicine can help control the condition and ease many of the symptoms. Many people living with the condition go on to lead long and fulfilling lives.

MS is generally split into two types: with individual relapses (attacks or exacerbations) or with gradual progression.
Someone with relapsing remitting MS will have episodes of new or worsening symptoms, known as relapses.
These typically worsen over a few days, last from days to months, then slowly improve over a similar time period.
The symptoms of a relapse may disappear altogether, with or without treatment, although some symptoms often persist, with repeated attacks happening over several years.

After many years (usually decades), many, but not all, people with relapsing remitting MS go on to develop secondary progressive MS.

In this type of MS, symptoms gradually worsen over time without obvious attacks. Some people continue to have infrequent relapses during this stage.

In primary progressive MS, symptoms gradually worsen and accumulate over several years, and there are no periods of remission, though people often have periods where their condition appears to stabilise.
