Living arrangements

Living with multiple sclerosis can be difficult, both for the person experiencing the disease and for their carer.

It’s important for carers to have breaks from their caring role for rejuvenation. It’s also important for people living with multiple sclerosis to have a break from their regular routine, to socialise with other people and enjoy different experiences.

There are several different types of respite for you to consider. It’s a good idea to plan ahead to allow as much flexibility and choice as possible.
