MSWA has begun construction of a new multipurpose $7m facility for people living with a neurological condition in Albany.
The new High Support Accommodation Facility and Services Centre will replace the existing Albany Centre which has been providing services and supports to locals for over 20 years.
The new High Support Accommodation Facility will feature 10 fully accessible units to cater for MSWA’s high-support Clients with 24-hour care provided on-site.
The new Services Centre will continue to provide MSWA’s regional Clients access to services including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing, counselling, speech and dietetics and outreach – a space to socialise and connect with others also living with a neurological condition.
The new state-of-the-art facility is being funded by MSWA’s fundraising efforts, directly made possible by the continued support and generosity of the MSWA fundraising community.
“MSWA has been providing services and supports to Albany locals living with a neurological condition for over two decades. We are looking forward to opening a new modern facility providing more care and more services for our regional Clients, and of course catering for our high-support Clients as well.” – CEO Marcus Stafford AM.
“I’m really excited about this new Facility in Albany. Their investment will make a huge difference to the lives of so many people living in the region with MS and other neurological conditions.” – MSWA Client Denise Amato.
It is expected the new High Support Accommodation Facility and Services Centre will be completed in early 2022.
