The concept for the development of a supported holiday facility came from an evaluation of existing services which highlighted the need for accessible type holiday breaks for people with MS and other physical disabilities.
In September 2012 the MS North West Therapy Centre commenced renovating and extending a residence purchased on the 1st Sea Road, Strandhill, Sligo called Woodhaven.
In June 2014, the MS Therapy Centre opened a specially equipped holiday facility with accessible accommodation on this site. Woodhaven has been fitted out to the highest specification and provides supported holiday breaks for people with MS and other physical disabilities and their families/carers.
The project is designed by Eamon O’Dowd, Design and Planning Consultant Sligo with input from the Occupational Therapy staff at HSE West, Markievicz House Sligo.
The building contains the following:
Woodhaven spells for an exciting time in expansion of the existing services for people with MS and other physical disabilities, but one which will not be without challenges. However the MS Centre is extremely fortunate to have an invaluable group of committed people behind the development who have worked tirelessly to see the project through to fruition and their continued support is much appreciated.
