Caring for someone with MND
When someone close is diagnosed with MND, you may find yourself unexpectedly in a caring role. As MND is a disease that progresses, demands on the carer will increase. The publications listed here will help you plan for the challenges ahead and remain aware of your own needs when providing support.
