People living with multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions in the South-West have a new state-of-the-art support facility with today's official opening of the MSWA Community and Health Services Centre.
MSWA is a not-for-profit organisation providing supports and services for people living with a range of neurological conditions including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, motor neurone disease and acquired brain injury.
MSWA provides direct care services, supports research projects and educates the community about neurological conditions. The organisation is a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme provider and receives State Government funding via the Department of Communities, Disability Services.
The $1.5 million facility opened in December 2016 and was celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony today. The accessible centre includes a physiotherapy gym with specialised equipment, massage rooms, consulting rooms dedicated to counselling, nursing and allied health teams as well as a large activity area.
Comments attributed to Disability Services Minister Stephen Dawson:
"MSWA has been supporting Western Australians living with neurological conditions for more than 45 years. The organisation has a proven record of providing a wide range of supports and services to meet each person's individual needs.
"The new purpose-built centre provides the South-West with superior facilities and enables MSWA to continue their important work assisting people living with neurological conditions."
