A multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis can be frightening, not just to the person with the disease, but to their family and loved ones, as well. To date, over 250,000 people in the U.S. are living with MS. Although there is currently no cure for MS, its effects can be minimized, as can reoccurrences and flare-ups of its symptoms.

To help you and your loved ones dealing with this disease, Griswold Home Care has gathered a number of informational resources to help you learn more about multiple sclerosis, its signs and symptoms, and the latest best-practices in helping combat some of its more devastating effects.
