The Merseyside Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association has the sole aim of serving all those people in the area affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This includes people with MND, their carers, family and friends.
MND is an incurable condition that paralyses the muscles leaving people unable to do everyday things the rest of us take for granted. Walking, talking and swallowing become virtually impossible. MND can also affect the areas of the brain involved in thinking, language, behaviour and personality. Doctors call this 'cognitive change'.
Specific Branch Objectives:
Provide support for people affected by MND
Raise money to help people affected by MND
Raise awareness about MND within Merseyside and Wirral
Influence policy and decision-makers within Merseyside, to the benefit of people affected by MND
We liaise with health and social care professionals such as Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists and the Medical Profession
