We are here to help fast-track a cure for MS, and care until we’re there.
MS Plus (formerly known as “Multiple Sclerosis Ltd/ MS Limited”), is the go-to provider of information, advice and support for people living with multiple sclerosis (“MS”) and other neurological conditions. We also help with vital research for early prevention, better treatments and ultimately to fast-track a cure for MS.
What is MS?
MS is a progressive neurological disease that affects more than 33,000 Australians. It is a disease of the central nervous system that interferes with nerve impulses from the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves, manifesting in a wide range of symptoms that vary from person to person and are often invisible. As yet, there is no cure, however, there are a number of treatments available to help people live well with the disease.
Who we are:
We are a combined entity of ACT, NSW, Victoria and Tasmania, with over 60 years’ insight into how to live well with progressive neurological conditions. We help fund vital research and support MS Australia to help targeting prevention, better treatments and a cure for MS.
How we help:
We also provide cutting edge response to providing vital services to people living with MS such as our state-of-the-art Wellbeing Centres giving access to Allied Health specialists such as neuro trained physiotherapy, occupational therapists, dieticians and nurses. The Centres also offer support services such as navigating the NDIS, access to education, mental health support, peer and employment support services critical to wellbeing.
We offer a range of services to support people living with MS, which include:
- Phone and email support through Plus Connect – our gateway to living well with multiple sclerosis
- Free, specialised consultation with a health professional through our Plus Advisor service
- NDIS assistance through Plus Support Coordination, which helps you put individuals’ NDIS plan into action, implement the funded services and supports, and manage plans in the long term.
- Everything needed to support individuals’ goals for living well, from exercise and nutrition through to social engagement and specialist employment support, through our Allied Health services.
- Around the clock support when things get challenging, through our Plus Respite and Residential facilities.
