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.
