Brentwood In-Home Care: How Geography Affects Your Chances for Multiple Sclerosis

a-1 home careIs your living situation a contributing factor to your chances for developing Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?  Research suggests that developed countries with better sanitation have more cases of Multiple Sclerosis than other places; the cause is undetermined, but in the words of Dr. Nicholas LaRocca, Vice President of healthcare delivery and policy research for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, “if you look at a map of the world, you’ll see that the risk increases as you move farther away from the Equator… We know that as sanitation improves, so does the risk of contracting MS.”  Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that manifests various symptoms such as pain in the back or eyes, impaired coordination, excessive urination at night, vision loss, fatigue, and sensation of pins and needles, tingling and burning, among other symptoms.  Day-to-day functioning becomes more difficult as the autoimmune disease of the central nervous system progresses over time.  A-1 Home Care in Brentwood provides excellent round-the-clock Multiple Sclerosis Care for your daily needs.

About A-1 Home Care in Brentwood

A-1 Home Care has earned a solid reputation with families in Brentwood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Culver City, Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach, Hollywood, Century City and other cities throughout Los Angeles County.  Going 25 years strong, we still hear from return clients who continually refer their friends and family members because of the satisfaction they get from our caregiver services.  We take senior safety and elder care very seriously; all caregivers are required to pass an extensive criminal background check and are covered by malpractice insurance.  They also pass multiple interviews, first by our care management staff, and then by you – because we understand that just because we may like a caregiver does not mean you will like the home care aide we picked for you.  Every client gets to interview a selection of caregivers before anyone is allowed to enter their home.
