What's Included In Motor Neurone Disease Home Care?

FOUR ESSENTIAL TYPES OF CARE

The symptoms for Motor Neurone Disease can be mild in the early stages of the disease, this will give you time to adapt to provide your own support. When MND does progress and daily activities eventually become more and more difficult it can prove to be overwhelming and this is where we can help. At Promedica24 we offer long term support with live-in care workers that specialise in MND patient support.

Our Essential Care Services For Motor Neurone Disease Live-In Care

The main benefit for a live-in care worker allows for the individual to be looked after in the comfort of their own home. However here is what you can expect with our live-in care service: Support With Daily Life Motor Neurone Disease will have different effects on different individuals and restrict certain daily life activities. A big symptom is muscle wastage, resulting in feeling weak and tired, which will make it quite difficult for an individual to keep up with personal hygiene. The same will be said for daily household tasks and routines. Our live-in care workers will be able to come in and aid with personal care and daily tasks all while maintaining a level of dignity. Preserving Dignity & Independence Preserving dignity is key in care work as it can be hard mentally and emotionally for the individual to have to rely on someone else in simple daily tasks. Preserving dignity also shows a level of respect and here at Promedica24 we respect our clients to the maximum. Whilst preserving the individual’s dignity we also encourage independence, being diagnosed with MND can be daunting, so the care worker will be there to help you take back control to live life as comfortably as possible. Liaising With Medical & Healthcare Professionals Treatment for MND revolves around ensuring symptoms are managed and life is as comfortable as possible. The live-in care worker provided will be specialised in MND patient support creating care plans tailored to the individual’s case. Making sure any medication and accompanying clients to appointments will be included in the care plan. Friend & Family Communication As the condition progresses it will be important to keep the family updated so they still feel involved. With this arranging family visits and social activities when possible will be important, not only for the family’s peace of mind, but keeping the patients social will help with mental health during times like this. In one of our recent blogs we explain what it means to have Motor Neurone Disease and how it can affect you living with MND.
