Help provide specialist co-ordinated care for people with MND
Care for people with MND requires input from a wide range of health and social care professionals. Our MND Care Centres ensure people with MND receive timely and co-ordinated support from a team of MND specialists all on one day, under one roof, reducing the need for exhausting repeat hospital visits. This co-ordinated care has been shown to improve quality of life and life expectancy for people with MND.
Last year alone, our 22 Care Centres helped 3,828 people living with MND. It costs us approximately £60,000 each year for each of our MND Care Centres, with the remainder of costs being met by the NHS.
"John has an excellent team at the Liverpool MND Care Centre, consisting of an occupational therapist, physiotherapist, a speech and language therapist, along with a gentleman who gave advice on ‘survival’ finance & benefits which can be applied for if needed. He sees the neurologist every six months or so. It’s very comforting to know that we can access any of these professionals
"A dedicated neurological nurse, Karen, is assigned to John, who has been, and is, marvellous. Karen is the MND Co-ordinator at the Care Centre and is the first point of contact for John. She makes sure we see the right people. John has asked her advice about his concerns and she has helped me too. We both hold her in high regard. John feels very well cared for and is grateful for the help provided at the Care Centre."
