About the resource

Providing loving care can be deeply satisfying but also physically and emotionally exhausting, especially for the primary support partner. Because MS is unpredictable, the support partner role may change from one day to another or gradually over time when and if MS progresses. This booklet provides an overview of the issues that support partners might face.

The resource section at the end is a good starting place for those who want more in-depth information on specific kinds of support. Whereas, support partners for someone who is newly diagnosed may want to concentrate only on those sections relevant to their particular situation.
