MND describes a group of diseases that affect the motor neurones (a type of nerve) in the brain and spinal cord. These motor neurones tell the muscles what to do and as they degenerate there is progressive weakness. This leads the muscles to weaken, stiffen and waste. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. Some people also experience changes to their thinking and behaviour. However, MND affects everyone differently. Not all symptoms will affect everyone, or in the same order. Symptoms also progress at varying speeds, which makes the course of the disease difficult to predict.
Our specialised carers understand that this progressive condition necessitates a flexible but more permanent level of support, which when provided at home helps preserves the chosen lifestyle of our clients.
Care is delivered by trained and qualified carers, experienced in the wide range of symptoms and constraints caused by MND at every stage of its progression.
Our care can include mobility support, incontinence management, feeding, medication administration, communication, personal care, housekeeping, social interaction, companionship and exploring and facilitating hobbies and interests.
Bespoke care plans are developed in conjunction with the client, medical practitioners and family, and are reviewed in order to help monitor the condition and ensure well-developed care needs plan is maintained.
