Our MND Community Nurse works as part of the multi-disciplinary team to support people living with Motor Neurone Disease, and their families and carers. Support is available from the point of diagnosis onwards and our MND Community Nurse is a single point of contact to give help when it is needed.  We understand the impact this illness can have on the life of patients and their loved ones, and that care needs can be complex and often frightening. As symptoms can change and progress, our MND Community Nurse is there to support both medically and emotionally, at a time and place that is right for you and your family.  This care is available at the hospice and out in the community and in your own home. 

“Some patients prefer to stay at home, with their families, pets or a place that feels safe to them. For some it is the hospice and for some it is their home and I support them and enable them to choose what is right for them.”

If you or someone you love is living with Motor Neurone Disease,  Dove House may be able to help and alongside the whole hospice team the MND Community Nurse will look at the best package of care for you.

“My name is Christine and I have Motor Neurone Disease, I come to the hospice for respite and to socialise.
When you’re at Dove House for respite you get treated to baths and complimentary therapies and lovely meals and lots of lovely chats with the nurses. Everybody is really pleasant.
I was at a bit of a low ebb before coming to the hospice as I wasn’t socialising very much, which is important to me. It made a big difference to me within these three weeks, I am really happy to be here. Anybody who knows me knows all I need in life is a cup of tea and a chat.
There is no need to worry or fear coming to the hospice, all the staff are lovely and put you at ease from the first time anyone sees you.”
