MS Otago is a non-profit dedicated to helping people with MS live the life they want to live.

Otago

The Otago Multiple Sclerosis Society aims to empower people with Multiple Sclerosis and associated diseases and their families and carers by providing them with professional support, education, information and skills, to participate actively in the community in ways that are meaningful to them.

The Otago Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society Inc serves Otago as one of 18 regional Societies throughout New Zealand.

We create opportunities for people with MS to meet with each other.

The work we do to help people includes:

*Discussing a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis and what this means for them, their family and for the future

*Up-to-date information about Multiple Sclerosis and management of the condition

*Advocacy

*Counselling and support

*Referral to other agencies and allied health professionals

*Supporting partners, carers, families, friends, employers and work colleagues

*Facilitating support groups and networks

*Conducting assessment of needs, like the acceptance criteria for the Total Mobility Scheme

*Liaising with other service providers, such as WINZ and home care agencies

Multiple Sclerosis Otago works at empowering the people of Otago and their support networks to actively participate in their community.
