Your local Care Centre/Network
“We feel extremely fortunate to use the Care Centre. It really is such a relief to know that we have support from the wide range of experts there. They do go the extra mile and don’t just signpost to specific support but make that call for us. They make living with and managing MND/FTD as easy as it can be by helping us plan for the future so we can try to keep one step ahead.” Kathy, a carer.
We promise that we won’t rest until everyone with MND gets the care they need when they need it. One key way we can do this is through funding our 22 MND Care Centres and Networks, which enable specialists to come together to improve the standard of care for people with MND.
Our Care Centres/Networks hold regular clinics, where multidisciplinary teams work together to monitor and advise on symptoms and share information. They also work with health and social care teams to improve co-ordination of services. Around 4,000 people with MND currently receive care though our Care Centres and Networks.
A donation of £15,000 would fund a Care Centre/Network for 3 months, helping us to provide the type of high-quality, co-ordinated care that has been shown to improve quality of life and life expectancy for people with MND. Where possible, we will put your donation towards your local Care Centre/Network.
