Association Visitors

Association visitors play a vital, valued and unique role in helping us to ensure people with MND and their families receive the support and services they require.
Becoming a visitor can be a rewarding, enriching experience. Those who train as visitors come from all walks of life, and all backgrounds. You don't need personal experience of MND just the desire to make a difference.

 

What is MND?

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones.

Degeneration of the motor neurones leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.

The effects of MND can vary enormously from person to person, from presenting symptoms, the rate and pattern of the disease progression to the length of survival time after diagnosis.
