Motor Neurone Disease, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), is often a difficult and challenging journey, for anyone diagnosed.
It is crucial to find ways to adapt and cope once an MND diagnosis has been made, ensuring you live a fulfilling life and receive the right care for you.
Education and awareness
Improving your understanding of MND will not only help you live with the disease better, but it will also influence your care choices and make sure they are the right ones for you.
Your MND journey requires you to stay informed, so you can navigate the tricky healthcare system with your family and can be directed towards the relevant support groups to ensure you receive the most appropriate care.
Personal wellbeing and support
A diagnosis of MND can be overwhelming, which is why it is important to look after your mental health as well as your physical health.
You need to allow yourself time to process your diagnosis and what your next steps are, first and foremost.
Then, you should start to seek support from family and friends as well as care professionals like Synergy Complex Care.
Living with MND can negatively impact your health, both physically and mentally, but you should prioritise it to ensure you are taking care of yourself the best way you can.
Not only do you need to seek physical care, but you might also need to seek psychological care.
Options range from support groups to therapists to psychologists where you will always receive valuable guidance to navigate you through the complexities that follow an MND diagnosis.
There are no cures or treatments for MND, but there are care options that can ease the effects of MND.
Our expertly trained and friendly staff are experienced in a multitude of symptoms and requirements that are caused by MND, no matter what stage the disease is in.
The most vital component of MND care is communication, which is why we use the most appropriate aids and methods to allow each client independence to speak with the care team, express choices for their own care, and further provide consent.
The work we have done with the MNDA Association ensured all of our staff have an in-depth understanding of the condition to provide the best care for you following your MND diagnosis.
