Motor Neurone Disease

Hospices are most known for caring for patients with cancer, although 20% of Weldmar’s patients have other life limiting illnesses, which includes Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Weldmar has always supported people with MND and their families, our clinical team has an in-depth knowledge of symptom management. We work closely with our colleagues in the NHS and liaise with the local MND Association.

Our MND team includes a Nurse Specialist, a Medical team of Doctors with specialist knowledge of symptom management, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, a Complementary Therapist, and a team offering spiritual and psychological support to patients, family and carers, including children.

To learn more about our clinics, please watch the video below:

Our specialist Physiotherapy team supports people with MND as their disease progresses, aiming to maintain independence, quality of life and comfort, as their needs change.

Our specialist Occupational Therapy team is able to offer a holistic and timely intervention to meet the changing needs of patients with a diagnosis of MND.  Specialist intervention includes assessment of the home environment in anticipation of future needs with resulting equipment provision and referral to relevant agencies.
