As members of the “Sandwich Generation,” you may find yourself in the difficult position – now or in the future – of caring for children while also providing support to parents or other family members. This can be especially stressful and wearing when also dealing with the challenges of MS.

Two psychologists who specialize in MS care will share tips on priority setting, constructive communication, asking for and accepting help, managing stress and taking charge of yourself.
