Andrea is a man aged 47, who in 1991 was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis; in 1998 there was a worsening of clinical conditions that forced him to walk with the aid of Canadians crutches. He had to leave work (receiving pension for incapacity for work) and in 2005 he moved into an apartment with no architectural barriers. This project aims to highlight the path followed by both Andrea and the various actors involved to allow him to have an independent life at home, despite the progression of the disease. The hardest thing was, and still is, accompanying Andrea during the deterioration of functional capacity, trying to propose and implement strategies (aids and services) to enable him to have his own autonomy while maintaining a good quality of life.
