What Is Motor Neurone Disease?

Motor neurone disease is a progressive disorder that causes damage to parts of the nervous system.

There are approximately 5,000 people in the UK with motor neurone disease. It is an inherited disorder and symptoms can develop at any age. However, in most cases, symptoms first develop in people over the age of 50. Symptoms of motor neurone disease include:

  • Slurred speech
  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle cramps
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty swallowing or chewing

There is no cure for motor neurone disease but there are treatments available to manage symptoms and slow progression.

The Benefits Of Motor Neurone Disease Home Care

As the condition progresses you will find daily activities, such as cooking, cleaning and personal care more challenging. Understandably you will want to stay at home and the thought of moving to a care home to receive support with these tasks could be upsetting, especially if your symptoms develop earlier in life. We understand this and our care assistants can support you in your own home with any activities you’re finding difficult. 

During our first meeting, we’ll consult with you and your family to find out what support you want and we’ll use this information to create a care plan tailored to your needs. Our goal is to maximise your quality of life and independence so you can live your life the way you want.

More reasons to choose Tiggo Care

Our Care packages are bespoke

At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.

We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.

We're fully regulated

Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited to ensure we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.

We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice

Our carers are fully vetted & trained

At Tiggo Care, all of our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you live at home with motor neurone disease?

It is possible to live at home with motor neurone disease but as the condition progresses you will need some extra help from friends, family, or a professional home care assistant. During the late stages of motor neurone disease, you may also need support from a community nurse.

How do you help someone with motor neurone disease?

All people with motor neurone disease have their own care preferences. The best thing you can do is ask them how they want to be supported rather than making assumptions.

Can motor neurone disease symptoms come and go?

Motor neurone disease symptoms are progressive and so they get worse with time. Symptoms may initially only present in one part of the body but as the condition progresses symptoms will spread to the rest of the body.

Can Tiggo Care provide a full-time live-in care assistant for someone with motor neurone disease?

Yes, we have full-time live-in care assistants who can support people with motor neurone disease.
