Sometimes people living with multiple sclerosis reach a point where they are no longer able to access the level of support and services they need in their home anymore. In these cases, people may seek longer term living options.
We provide long term residential care for a small number of people in Lidcombe (NSW), Watsonia and Williamstown (VIC).
These places are funded for people on the Disability Support Register by state government, so applications are made directly to the relevant department.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme will also help people to meet their personal goals, including those relating to their living situations. The NDIS is currently only available in some trial sites, but it’s due to rollout across the country from July 2016.
We can help you talk through the options available and advise you about what to do next. Contact MS Connect™ (Freecall 1800 042 138 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) to have a conversation about your situation.
