MS Plus offers a free Peer Support Program for people, family and carers affected by multiple sclerosis to connect and support each other face-to-face, over the phone or virtually.
If your condition has progressed to a point where you can no longer live safely and comfortably at home, our caring and experienced team at MS Plus is here to support you.
We provide long-term MS residential care for a small number of people in our purpose-built facilities in Williamstown, Watsonia, McKinnon and Beaumaris in Victoria and Beverly Hills in NSW. When living in our residential accommodation you can expect:
We offer residential accommodation through fully accessible housing, featuring a shared kitchen, dining area and living area with heating and cooling throughout.
At our residential accommodation we offer 24/7 support, meal preparation and assistance to attend medical appointments if needed.
Our team provides a COVID-safe environment at all times. We use full Personal Protective Equipment when it’s required, conduct deep cleaning, temperature checks and other important measures to keep you safe.
Our residential accommodation is an enrolled Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) property. You will need to have SDA funding as well as Supported Independent Living (SIL) available in your NDIS plan. We can help you prepare for your planning conversation and even come with you if you like, contact our MS Plus team for more information.
You will also need to be able to pay a reasonable rent contribution, as set by the NDIA.
Applications to live in our Williamstown residential MS housing are processed by the Victorian Department of Families, Fairness and Housing. Applications for permanent residents are not currently being accepted as there are no available rooms. If a room does become available, it will be posted on Housing Hub.
