Neil who lives with an acquired brain injury and Alena who has MS originally met at a weekly function they both attended 20 years ago.
Neil and Alena are now both living at MSWA’s high-support accommodation facility in Hamilton Hill where their friendship has blossomed. Here, they each have their own self-contained unit, which gives them their own independence, whilst receiving the 24-hour care and support needed to meet their individual requirements.
These days, as long-term partners, Neil and Alena spend every day together. Alena says “Neil is hilarious, he says the funniest things and makes me laugh. We just have a good time together.” She adds “Being at MSWA’s Hamilton Hill facility makes life easier. Everything I could possibly need is here and the help is amazing.”
“I never would have changed careers, carried the Olympic torch, or had the chance to compete in sailing internationally if it hadn’t been for the support of MSWA.”
“What they’ve done for me is taken someone who is scared of the unknown and the future and said – we’re going to support you in your journey with MS throughout your life! That support is invaluable, and knowing they have my back is huge for me. I know I can always rely on them.”
