Care Giver Resource


Wednesday June 14 2017 03:11 PM

As part of National Carers Week, MS Ireland are re-launching our Care Giver Resource. Originally launched in 2013, this 60 page online resource looks at various elements of care to someone providing support to a family member or friend living with MS. It aims to provide practical information, signposting to services and support to care givers in their important role. The resource includes:

  • Information on support services for carers
  • Practical information on providing various aspects of care
  • Adaptation and technology
  • Benefits and entitlements
  • Planning for the future

The resource can be accessed here

This online resource has been created by Aidan Larkin, Services Development Manager of MS Ireland. Special thanks to Gemma Donnelly-Cox for her expertise and input. Reviewed and updated June 2017 by Aidan Larkin, Services Development Manager, Harriet Doig, Information, Advocacy & Research Officer and Aoife Kirwan, Information, Advocacy & Research Assistant.
