Whilst the individual symptoms of MND may vary widely from person to person, the right support can make a significant difference to the quality of life of those affected.
As the condition progresses, seemingly simple day-to-day activities may become more difficult, or impossible. We work closely with our clients experiencing MND, and their families, to help them adapt and adjust to their condition, whilst remaining in the comfort of their own home. That goes beyond just looking after physical health needs; we also focus on providing support for our clients’ overall wellbeing, whether that’s enabling access to hobbies and interests, facilitating lifestyle choices, or supporting family interaction.
We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality of motor neurone disease care as standard. Our teams of personal care assistants, matched to each of our clients, undergo comprehensive general and client-specific training to ensure they uphold the highest standards of care. What’s more, they build close working relationships with our clients, and as a result are often ideally placed to identify early signs and symptoms of progression and initiate an appropriate response.
We take an innovative approach to working with our clients, and identifying ways to maximise their independence. That might mean implementing changes to routine or systems in the home, or enabling our clients to do more in the wider community.
We work with our clients, their families, and all healthcare professionals involved in their care – GPs, hospitals, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists – to ensure the care we provide is appropriate and considerate of all needs.
