Whether you are a spouse, partner, parent, child, family member or friend providing care on a regular basis to someone with MS, your role is an important one. The term “caregiver” is very broad and can include any person at any age and often, there is more than one caregiver who provides care.
The bond between a person with a chronic disease such as MS and the person, who provides care, can be very strong and very positive. At the same time, caregiving can also be physically and emotionally demanding and exhausting.
No matter the extent of your caregiving, it is important that you also take care of yourself.
The MS Society recognizes the incredible contribution that caregivers make at a personal level, and we are committed to supporting you.
The MS Society provides a range of resources and support for caregivers.
