About the resource

As we get older our bodies change, which can bring new challenges for living with MS. We also become more likely to develop additional health conditions and MS symptoms tend to progress over the years. For these reasons and more, it is important that people with MS can access reliable information about how they can maximise their physical and cognitive abilities, manage their MS, and get the most out of life as they get older.

This guide covers six key areas of living with MS as you grow older;

  1. How age, MS and other conditions can affect your health
  2. Basic steps to managing your health
  3. Taking control of your health (Self-management)
  4. Independence and identity
  5. Cognitive health
  6. Mental health
