Facility-Based MS Respite 

Facility-based respite takes place in a purpose-designed centre where the person living with multiple sclerosis can visit for a set number of weeks, or for shorter periods. We now have a total of seven respite beds available at our MS Respite Short Term Accommodation service in Watsonia, freshly refurbished and ready for bookings.

Why you should consider MS Respite

We offer warm and friendly, purpose designed,  respite care. Our carers provide 24/7 support and have a great understanding of multiple sclerosis – so you don’t have to explain yourself

Many people say the best part of coming to stay in MS Short Term Accommodation is the opportunity to socialise and connect with other people living with neurological conditions. You are also very welcome to host visitors in our recreational facilities or gardens, or explore Melbourne by train and enjoy the local shops.

How to access MS Respite Short Term Accommodation

The NDIS will fund your visit if you have Short Term Accommodation - Core Supports in your NDIS plan.
