Multiple sclerosis affects the entire family. Spouses, mothers, fathers and children as well as friends become caregivers — integral to the health and well-being of people with MS. Unfortunately, caregiving can have negative effects on the health of caregivers themselves and their own financial security.

For more information, see our position paper The Cost of Caring: Implications for family caregivers.
