MS doesn’t stop me being part of the family

Ina, 58, Netherlands

I live in Nieuw Unicum, a centre in the Netherlands which provides care for people with progressive MS. Since moving here, I am so much more independent. I can get help with the most energy-consuming tasks, like getting out of bed and having a shower, which means that I can focus my energy on the things I enjoy doing the most. For me, this is quality of life.

When I lived at home with my husband, I was much more dependent on him, but in Nieuw Unicum everything is nearby so I can get there myself and access the right treatment.
