Services we provide
Facility-based respite takes place in a purpose-designed centre which the person living with multiple sclerosis visits for a set number of weeks. We’re funded to provided this by NSW and VIC state governments.
Our facilities include:
We are now taking bookings for our Watsonia facility from 1 July to 30 September 2016. This is only for people who are not located in an NDIS area rolling out in 2016. Please contact MS Connect for more information.
FlexiRest provides a range of services that offer respite or a short break for family and unpaid carers, either in or out of your home.
We’re funded to provide services that other community and respite services can’t provide by state government in New South Wales only.
