“I would like more support to talk about the future and plan what can be done to help.” Carer, supporting a person with MND

If a relative or friend has received a diagnosis, you may feel overwhelmed and need time to adjust. As time goes on, any support or care you provide may feel a natural part of your relationship. However, health and social care services use the term ‘carer’ to describe someone who provides unpaid support to others. Accepting and using this term can help you identify and access services – many of which offer direct support for you, as well as the person with MND.
