Fondation Wivine aims to support patients with Alzheimer and Multiple Sclerosis

 

The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a devastating news for the concerned patients and their families. In the first case, memory and mental skills gradually wane, in the second case, the symptom starts with a difficulty to walk, and as the illness continues, it may lead to the complete inability to move.

 

In both cases, afflicted persons can no longer care for themselves. Thus, family members are confronted with an increasing burden of care. As the lost skills will never be regained, the care of Alzheimer or MS patients is very demanding and exhausting.

 

The founder has experienced this herself among her friends. This is the background to the creation of the Fondation Wivine, which is committed to support both the patients and their families in order to allow them the dignity they deserve.
