MND SA staff two advisors that specialise in Motor Neurone Disease. They are available to meet with clients and families in the office, at home or in hospital. MND advisors also host information sessions for interested people, service providers and community groups. These sessions educate and enable people to give the best possible care to those affected by Motor Neurone Disease.
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a terminal illness where the neurones controlling the muscles stop functioning correctly. As the motor neurones fail, the muscles they control weaken and this causes disability. Symptoms of MND are different for each person that is diagnosed. Some people need to use a wheelchair because they can't walk anymore. Others need to use an iPad to communicate because they can't talk anymore. There is no known cure or effective treatment, for MND.
We are a vital source of support to local people affected by this disease and we need YOUR help.
