How we help
Peter, Gwynneth, Linda and Margaret are Association Visitors trained by the MND Association
We can provide both advice and practical help
MND Association Visitors who are trained by the MNDAssociation will visit any person living with MND to offer advice and support and will, if desired, maintain regular contact.
Our branch will help people living with MND by
- buying equipment
- giving them financial help to enable them to install equipment in their homes or cars
- arranging respite for their carers
- Fund transport to our Open Meetings
In theory some of this could be supplied by the NHS but because MND progresses so quickly time is of the essence and the local branch of the MND Association can arrange things almost immediately without any requirement for means testing.
Over the past few years our branch has helped many people living with MND purchase equipment and services to make their lives, their families’ lives, and the lives of the people who care for them, easier.
Here are some examples;
We have helped people stay in their own homes by contributing to the cost of equipment, carers break, care, travel, etc
We have helped people feel more comfortable by paying for complementary therapy sessions such as massage.
