What is Muscular Dystrophy?

Muscular dystrophy is a group of inherited progressive diseases that cause weakness and muscle loss.

Research by Muscular Dystrophy UK suggests that 110,000 people in the UK live with one of the 60 types of muscular dystrophy. The age of onset of muscular dystrophy symptoms varies by type and ranges from 5 years to 60 years. General symptoms of muscular dystrophy include:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Regular falls
  • Difficulty getting up
  • Limited mobility
  • Problems with breathing and swallowing
  • Muscle pain
  • Muscle stiffness

Currently, there is no cure for muscular dystrophy but there are several treatments available to help manage the condition.

  • Household tasks
  • Cooking and meal preparation

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

How do you care for someone with muscular dystrophy?

People’s experiences of muscular dystrophy vary so it’s important not to make assumptions about their care needs. The most important thing you can do is to ask the person what care they want and to act accordingly.

Will a person with muscular dystrophy need constant care?

Muscular dystrophy is a lifelong condition that progresses with age. During the early stages, a person might not require any specialist care support. However, as the condition progresses people will require more care and during the later stages, 24/7 care might be required.

What can be done to make life easier for individuals with muscular dystrophy?

Muscular dystrophy greatly affects a person’s strength and mobility. Therefore, many people with muscular dystrophy will use mobility aids to help them to move around.

Does Tiggo Care provide specialist muscular dystrophy home care?

Tiggo Care provides specialist home care services for people diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.
