 Multiple Sclerosis (MS) has been an evolving part of Darren and Christine’s family life for over two decades. Together they have modified their home to be more accessible and developed new relationships as Darren’s support needs have gradually increased.

For twenty two years, one of those key relationships has been with Home Care Expert Andrea. "She’s one in a billion. Andrea is so thoughtful and does whatever she can to make the time she is here mean something," said Darren.

Andrea was the one who encouraged Darren and Christine to get involved in the community. "She gave us courage to go out in the wheelchair. It was a big step and she made it so much easier," said Christine.

The admiration and respect is mutual. Darren is 'a constant source of inspiration' for Andrea and always shows so much compassion for others. 

"I have respect for the fact that we are not together this much by choice", acknowledges Darren. "Andrea makes a difference to peoples' lives - it's the truth," he said.
