Staying Smart is a website designed for people who want to know (or know more) about how mulitple sclerosis can affect thinking, including memory, concentration and planning.

The website starts with everyday problems which are then linked to a set of information which is helpful for that type of problem. It might be memory, attention, wayfinding, finding things, language, or executive skills. Each type of thinking problem has its own set of information, . Each has a short explanation and a useful Tips and Tricks section.

You are invited to add your own advice to help other people using the site.

  • Gadgets and Gizmos lists - items you can buy that may be helpful. 
  • MST publications -  a catalogue of pamphlets and fact sheets you may find helpful, published by the MS Trust. 
  • Other Resources  - this lists helpful books, websites and DVD’s from other sources.
