MSU values Caregivers and Care Partners
Myositis Support and Understanding understands and appreciates the important role that caregivers and care partners play in helping to manage their loved one’s disease. They are the rock and foundation for any patient living with Myositis. Without them, their loved one may feel alone, isolated, and may not be able to do the things they enjoy.
Caregivers are instrumental in helping to manage their loved one’s health by going to doctor visits and asking questions, taking notes, and explaining things that the patient may forget. Caregivers are a part of the “invisible healthcare team” and we work to acknowledge them so they are recognized and even rewarded for their hard work.
In an effort to help caregivers succeed, we have compiled some helpful resources.
