Default Do people with multiple sclerosis want to live together? - 12-27-2008, 06:47 AM

My mother is working on creating a community where people with MS can live together. It is called MSCampus and is affordable non profit housing in Ohio. I am wondering what people with multiple sclerosis think about living with other handicapped people. I will refine this question more after we get some general thoughts from people with multiple scleross.

I am not sure how that would really help one another, I mean my mom has MS, if another person with MS lived with her and they were both handicapped, how could they help each other. My mom is unable to do much of anything for herself, she is completely dependant on my sister who lives with her. She can feed herself and do things for herself in the bathroom, but she cannot walk at all. So I guess I cannot say she would want to live with another handicapped person. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Unless they are in the very early stages and are single and lonely.

I have been recently diagnosed with MS, I am just 27 and have had a pretty bad attack, I live right next to a lady that was diagnosed with it 25 years ago, it is nice to have somebody so close to talk to. We aren't very close but we are becoming closer. Who knew that I could live next to someone for 5 years and not know then pow. my life changes and I have a next-door-mentor. It is pretty cool. I would go for the gold, who knows MSCampus might be in a city near me soon!?!

I have MS and am married, but I dont have any family. If I was single that would be absolutely perfect for me. In fact if I was single I would be relocating to Ohio from Illinois to live there!About not being able to help each other, well for me personally (if I were single), I wouldnt have anyone else to help me anyways. Even if we couldnt physically help each other there would still be tons of other benefits and I think it is a great idea!
