DM/PM & YOU is dedicated to myositis education and helping people with dermatomyositis or polymyositis with both day-to-day and long-term living. It’s important to also recognize that caregivers play a large part in reaching that goal.
When someone you love needs help, it’s only natural to want to care for him or her. Caring for someone with a chronic illness like dermatomyositis or polymyositis can be rewarding—but it can also be a challenge. There are steps you can take to make things easier for yourself. Of course, that can also make things better for the person you care for.
