Home Health Aides Celebrated During National MS Awareness Month

Posted by Brian Spence on Mar 6, 2015 8:00:00 AM

MSLogo-1March is National Multiple Sclerosis Education And Awareness Month. In addition to promoting education and awareness for multiple sclerosis during the month of March, it is also a great time to celebrate the people who work with and care for multiple sclerosis patients.

Home Health Aides are able to offer support to multiple sclerosis patients and the friends and family members who are their primary caregivers. Sometimes people with MS feel like their support needs are a burden to their family and friends, and they feel a lot of relief at being able to hire an aide to lift some of the pressure off of their primary caregivers. Home health caregivers offer compassionate care, while encouraging the MS patient to do as many things for themselves as they are able. Promoting independence and patience is an important part of a home health aide's job.

This year, the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation has announced their "Orange is the New Black Campaign" to continue to bring awareness to Multiple Sclerosis. You can participate in the campaign by taking a photo of yourself with an orange and then posting it to your social media accounts with the hashtag #orange4msf.

Another way to raise awareness of MS is to join or support Team Staffing Plus as they walk for Multiple Sclerosis on May 2nd, 2015. 

Encourage your friends, family co-workers and patients to participate in or support either of the above efforts, since raising awareness and promoting education is the primary function of this fun campaign.
