Information for care workers
Motor neurone disease (MND) is a progressive and terminal disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord.
As MND is a progressive condition, a person’s care needs will greatly increase over time and they will need more support from others.
This information is for you if you are a care worker – someone who is paid to provide care for people who are unable to look after their own care needs. You may be providing this care within a person’s home or in a care home or a hospice.
This section has been designed to give you information and practical tips on the care of someone with MND. It will help you find out more about MND, whether you care for someone with the condition now or in the future.
You can read more in our booklet:
