Approximately one in 50,000 people will develop MND in any one year, with more than 5,000 people in the UK affected at any one time. It is an illness of adulthood, generally affecting people over the age of 50.
Motor neurone disease (MND) causes a progressive weakness of many of the muscles in the body; motor nerves become damaged and eventually stop working. Therefore, the muscles that the damaged nerves supply gradually lose their strength.
Our specialised carers understand that this progressive condition necessitates a more permanent level of support, which when provided at home preserves the chosen lifestyle of our clients.
Care is delivered by trained and qualified carers, experienced in the wide range of symptoms and requirements caused by motor neurone disease at every stage of its development.
Our care includes mobility support, incontinence management, feeding, medication, communication, personal care, housekeeping, social interaction, companionship and exploring any hobbies and interests.
Bespoke care plans are developed in conjunction with medical practitioners, which are reviewed in order to monitor the condition of MND and to ensure a well-developed intervention plan is maintained.
