Construction of the new MS Plus Wellbeing Centre in Lidcombe is underway!
When it opens in 2024, the centre will represent a massive step forward in our ongoing efforts to help people with MS live life to the fullest, on their own terms.
The Centre has been designed as a supportive and healing community space, capable of offering holistic care to fill some of the gaps in a failing system.
The sad reality is that many people who live with MS and other neurological conditions don't have access to accommodation that is appropriate to their needs and life stage.
Now, thanks to you, the Wellbeing Centre in Lidcombe will help provide the right kind of care, including residential care for people of all ages.
The centre will include a specialised gym, so clients with MS can work on their strength and movement. There’ll be eight therapy spaces, a café, gardens, kids zone, and large communal areas for classes, workshops and group events. It will be a vibrant hub and social space.
It will be staffed by a team of caring and highly-trained professionals, to improve community access to physiotherapists, continence nurses, dieticians, and employment support workers.
We couldn’t have brought this wonderful vision to life without the generosity of our community, so thanks for helping create a better future for the many people who live with MS.
