Aging with MS


SHARE

 

Overview

We all grow older- including people with MS. MS is often described as a disease of young and middle aged adults. Yet a significant number of all people living with MS are 65 or older.
Until recently, little attention was paid to the issues or challenges of aging with MS, and very few resources or services specifically designed for older adults with MS were readily available. However, there is a growing interest in aging with MS and recognition that more attention must be paid to this important topic.
