MS Ireland is delighted to be involved with National Carers Week 9th - 15th June. Now in its eighth year, this year is shaping up to be the biggest and best National Carers Week yet!
Many people with MS rely on varying degress of support and care from their family. Often family members assume the role of caring as their loved one becomes more dependent.
In MS Ireland we believe that the work and contribution of carers should be recognised and celebrated. Each year we present the MS Carer of the Year award to a person who provides care and support above and beyond the call of duty. Meet Catherine Carey, the current winner.
Events will be taking place all over the country so check out National Carers Week events calendar.
We are hightlighting our MS Care Givers Toolkit, an information resource for all Care Givers of people with MS.
