      As an MS caregiver, what advice can you offer? What tips can you share on caregiving tasks that can benefit both patient and caregiver?

      Do you have advice that you can suggest to a new caregiver of an MS patient? What do you feel is the most valuable quality to possess as a caregiver?

      @forlisa is a caregiver who follows the MS forums. I hope that he’ll see this and respond to you.

      I’d suggest taking a look at the website http://www.caregiver.org.

      Also, I don’t know where you’re located but several of the local chapters of the National MS Society in the US offer support for caregivers.

      Hi Admin,
      As Ed said, check local resources, some agencies even have volunteers that can come and sit with your loved one, it would give you a break. It’s worth checking out to see what your area has to offer! A break, even once in awhile could do wonders for your overwhelmed feelings!
      We do have other caregivers here and I am sure it will be good for you to connect with them.
      Do you have specific questions you would like to ask?

      Hi Adam

      In the UK anyone involved with vulnerable people has to be.

      Should be able to check the rules on the net for wherever you  both live. Your national MS society will also know.

      Cheers John
