MS Care Centre – Your Friendship is Hope [2011]


A look inside Ireland’s only respite and therapy centre for people with Multiple Sclerosis.

The Care Centre is one of MS Ireland’s most widely used and valuable services. It is open to those with MS and other neurological conditions offering short term respite care, a nursing assessment programme and a range of therapeutic, social and well being interventions.

Taragh Donohue Communications manager of Multiple Sclerosis Ireland approached Distilled Ideas to tender for the making of a short documentary web-video about the centre. We began filming in February 2011.
The video will be used to explain what the centre does as well as hopefully triggering financial support for much needed repairs, and refurbishment of the centre. The video will be used primarily on the MS Ireland website and their social networking channels. It will also be used at presentations and outreach meetings.

The MS Care Centre is run by MS Ireland, the only national organisation providing information and support to the MS community. If you have any queries about MS please contact our MS Information Line on 1850 233 233 (10am — 2pm, Monday to Friday) or log onto


MS Ireland & Distilled Ideas would like to thank the following people for their involvement in this video:
Margaret Maguire, Deirdre Eustace, Jim and Mary Murphy, Eilish Clune, Audrey Roberts, Teresa Gallagher, Tenny Thomas, Eion Sheridan and all the other residents and staff of the MS Care Centre who participated in the video.
