Advanced MS - a carer's handbook
They are ‘severely affected’ by their MS. This means:
- they’re usually very restricted in how much they can move around
- they rely a lot, or completely, on you and other people for their everyday care
- they’ve got many symptoms, at the same time. These are complicated to deal with and aren’t going to go away
Being there for someone with MS is an incredibly valuable thing to do, with its own rewards. But it can have a major impact on you and your family.
We’ve talked to carers about how they manage. This handbook brings into one place what they’ve learned.
