If your relative or friend has been diagnosed with MND or Kennedy’s disease, supporting them may feel part of your relationship. However, health and social care services describe someone who provides unpaid care support as a 'carer'. This term can help you identify and access services, which offer direct support for you, as well as the person who has been diagnosed. Select from the following to find out more.

“I think that sometimes people take on a caring role, but don’t realise they are carers and don’t get the help that is available to them.” Carer, supporting a person with MND
