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 a condition 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.
Our specialist trained carers are experienced in the wide range of symptoms and requirements caused by motor neurone disease at every stage of its development. Communication using the most appropriate aids and methods is a vital component allowing the client to talk with the care team, express choices and provide consent. We have worked with the excellent MNDA Association to ensure our staff have an in-depth understanding of the condition.
