Caring for someone with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS) can be as fulfilling as it is exhausting. No matter what the case may be for you and the person you're supporting, it's important to remember that both of you are in this journey together. We have resources to help you every step of the way.
Working together to weigh the medication options can be empowering. That way, when the two of you meet with your healthcare team, you can feel more informed about your decisions and more able to have conversations in the future.
Sometimes a person with relapsing MS might simply want your help finding and digesting information about relapsing MS and medications. Other times, this person might want moral support. Being an advocate for them is the kind of support anyone would appreciate.
Sometimes the best kind of support is just being there for the other person. Relapsing MS can be unpredictable. People with relapsing MS tell us that patience is highly valued, especially as you learn how to communicate about and deal with the challenges you face with relapsing MS. A kind word or thoughtful gesture is welcome anytime.
These downloadable PDFs are designed to help you care for your loved one who is living with relapsing MS, whether they’re your parent, close friend, or partner.
