Provide informal support for persons living with multiple sclerosis (MS) that reside within long term care by visiting, chatting, playing cards/games, reading to them, discussing current events, helping them complete projects (activities decided upon by volunteer and resident). MS residents in long term care tend to feel isolated and lonely because of decreased socialization and would greatly benefit from regular visits by a 'friend.'
