CHILTERN MS CENTRE

We try to help people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) by offering a number of lifechanging and supportive therapies and treatments that are effective for the patient, such asphysiotherapy, occupational therapy and reflexology.

The treatments and support weprovide have a genuine impact on the individual, changing the quality of their daily life asthis type of long term care is not available to them on the NHS. The word ‘lifeline’ has oftenbeen used to describe the Centre, something we are incredibly proud of.

We treat 330patients each week and no one is ever turned away, however minor or severe their disability and, on average, we have 10 new patients referred to us every month. We are a local independent charity and are not restricted by any county boundaries.

If you are able to travel to us, we are here to support you. As we continue to provide our services to an ever-growing number of people within the local community with MS, their families and carers, we encapsulated the essence of what we do and our aspirations.

Our Mission answers the question ‘Why do we exist?’ and our Vision answers the question ‘What will the future look like as we fulfil our mission? What will be different?’ While mission is about today, vision is about the future, what we will become.

We have been providing advice and care to people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and their families for over 30 years. Our main goal is to help people gain greater control over their MS so that they continue to lead happy and healthy lives. Everyone here understands MS, whether it’s our expert and approachable staff, our fantastic volunteers or one of our over500 members themselves.

MS is endlessly variable, totally unpredictable and can lead to disability. We provide comprehensive and holistic care such as physiotherapy, hydrotherapy,
oxygen therapy, acupuncture and massage to over 330 people each week. We also have a dedicated carers support service as we know that MS affects the loved on
es of the people with MS too.
