How does the future look for people with Prader-Willi Syndrome?

In the past many people with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) did not have long life expectancy, with many passing in young adulthood due to health related issues, often associated with obesity. Although there is no cure for PWS, we now thankfully see great growth in the knowledge, research, medications and intervention needs for people with PWS resulting in greater quality of life.

There is no question that people with PWS need lifelong support surrounding food and diet, however with the right supports – such as what Interaction can offer – they can successfully lead lives much like their peers including finishing schooling, entering the workforce and moving out into their own homes.

Interaction currently support many people with PWS – both in shared accommodation settings and individual living, ranging in ages from 17 to 50 and are seen as the pioneers within Australia when it comes to providing accommodation support for PWS needs.
