Motor Neurone Disease: Live-in Care

What is Motor Neurone Disease care?

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) can make day-to-day living a challenge. Motor Neurone Disease refers to a collection of conditions where cells in the nerves and brain gradually stop working. The outcome over time is the brain gradually losing its ability to function and send signals to the body as usual.  

MND often progresses slowly, affecting specific areas such as the arms and legs, respiratory system or the mouth. Symptoms may include slurred or loss of speech, fatigue, muscle pain and weakness, difficulty with eating, weight loss or shortness of breath. As the condition advances, symptoms may progress to severe difficulty with breathing, joint pain, muscle loss, swallowing and personality changes. 

Live-in care from Elite is available to help you or your loved one manage MND symptoms, ensuring life is lived as independently as possible in the client's own home. Live-in care is targeted to support and assist with everyday living so those with Motor Neurone Disease and their loved ones don't feel alone in managing the condition.

I have been a client since January 2020. All I can say is the carers, office staff and management are exceptional. The carers are lovely and they are always understanding. The office staff are always polite over the phone, and if I have any issues, they sort it out for me. The management are amazing, they always call in to check on me. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone that needs care.
