Caregiver services are designed to provide a break or an extra set of hands for those who provide care for a loved one with multiple sclerosis. In addition to services, we also provide occasional programs targeted at caregivers' needs.
Care partners occasionally feel stress from the complex needs of the person with multiple sclerosis. As a result, they often forego taking care of themselves. To help ease the stress, the chapter provides financial assistance for respite care services. The chapter can provide financial assistance up to, but not to exceed, $1,000 for a facility stay or in-home service, once a year.
For this service:
- Confirmation of MS Diagnosis from a neurologist

None are scheduled at this time. Please check back soon.
The Greater Delaware Valley Chapter offers social and educational opportunities for families, from the popular annual outing at Dorney Park to workshops that teach kids about MS.
A Financial Assistance Application form must be completed and submitted to the chapter before any assistance can be provided.
