How to use Maslow
for Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, recurring, debilitating autoimmune disease. In MS, you lose the outer protective covering (myelin) of nerves (similar to the outside layer of wires). Unfortunately, once you lose the myelin surrounding your nerves, you are unable to regenerate it!

Maintaining function is the aim of the rehab game!

Although there are four main types of MS and there are medications for each of the types that you can receive as part of your MS treatment, maintaining your physical function is the aim of the rehab game!

Coordinate Your Team with Maslow Icon

On your team for the rehab game are physios, occupational therapists, speech therapists, neuropsychologists and rehab specialists. You are the team captain and the team’s goal is to keep your interests at heart and work through your symptoms that affect your speech, mood, disorders and day-to-day activities.

Since MS affects your brain and everyone’s brain is different, your MS symptoms will be variable, unpredictable and different to other MS sufferers. You may feel:

Finding your feet and establishing your team after rehab hospital can be hard!

When your rehab dream team believes you’re ready to return to your regular life you will lose the support system you had in the hospital, be given a mountain of information, be required to build your own care & rehab team and teach your care team how to give the best possible care. This can be very daunting!

It takes a lot of time to develop your own personal support system and train your support workers to care for you how you’d like to be cared for while trying to shape new brain connections to complete tasks. At times you may feel lost and overwhelmed – that’s okay!
