November is National Caregiver Recognition Month
The National MS Society supports the National Family Caregivers Association (NFCA) in their efforts to recognize family caregivers through our endorsement and recognition of November as National Family Caregivers Month. This is a nationally recognized time set aside to thank, support, educate and celebrate more than 50 million family caregivers across the country.
Many families and friends assist their loved ones with MS by helping with daily activities, such as providing transportation to appointments, cooking meals and ensuring that medications are taken on time and on the right days, and much more.
The Society recognizes that being a Caregiver is a huge responsibility that comes with joy, frustration and sacrifice. We are here to support our family caregivers by providing information and referral services, educational webinars, support groups, and care management resources, among other things. To learn more about how the Society can support you, please call an MS Navigator at 1-800-344-4867, option 1, or visit our resources online.
