Ways to Observe National Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month

Ways to Observe National Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month

For most of us, awareness campaigns can be difficult to navigate, especially if it is a cause that is outside our interests or those that are decidedly unrelatable.

The feeling of wanting to help but not knowing where to start or how to go about it is something that we as a provider of home health in Wichita, Kansas at Providence Home Health and Hospice LLC know too well.

That is why, as we observe National Multiple Sclerosis Month this March, we have listed down some of the ways that you can take part in the activities. Take a look below:

  • Educate yourself
    Little is known about multiple sclerosis. According to the Mayo Clinic, MS symptoms may vary widely depending on which nerve was affected and how severe it is. Some people may lose the ability to walk, while others may have long periods of remission. At present time, there is still no known cure for multiple sclerosis. However, various treatments can help speed recovery from attacks and manage symptoms.
  • Take part in events
    Every year, there are events with specific themes made to promote awareness about multiple sclerosis. Walk MS, Challenge Walk MS, and Bike MS are staple events that do this and also raise funds.
  • Donate to MS organizations to support on-going research
    Research is an effective way to furthering any cause—even for causes as well-known as the necessity for hospice care services among terminally ill patients; so, imagine how far your donation can go for diseases as unpredictable and little understood as multiple sclerosis.

If you know someone or is taking care of a loved one who is experiencing some symptoms of multiple sclerosis, such as slurred speech, fatigue, dizziness, experiencing pain in some parts of their body, and bowel and bladder disfunction for unknown reasons, it is important to have them see an expert to help them manage or treat such symptoms.

We hope the above list gave you ideas. Make sure to check back on this page for more informative blog posts like this as well as for anything related to home health & hospice in Kansas.
