Motor Neuron Disease

The term motor neuron disease, or “MND,” refers to a set of illnesses that damage the motor neurons—nerves in the brain and spinal cord that direct muscles—and cause them to malfunction. The motor neuron messages gradually stop reaching the muscles, causing them to tighten and weaken as well as to waste away.

Although MND can afflict anyone at any age, the average age at which people get MND is 50. The symptoms of MND vary in intensity and are unique to each person who has them. Even while muscle weakness causes the majority of symptoms, MND has the following specific symptoms.

  • Struggle with eating, drinking, and normal functioning.
  • Problematic thoughts and behaviors
  • Communication and body language issues
  • Irregular and jittery speech
  • Restricted movement
  • Joint stiffness
  • Soreness and agony
  • Spasms and cramps
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Stress and exhaustion
  • Weak coughing

At Real Care Health Services, we provide carers who receive in-depth training so they can comprehend MND and how it develops. Though MND is difficult to foresee, we will provide a care team that will try hard to check up on your health daily and know your particular needs to ensure the best-suited nursing care plan for MND is at hand for you at any time. Our carers will efficiently work for the management of your symptoms so that you can have a high quality of life with care and assistance that is specifically catered to your needs.


Specifically, for MND patients with communication and speech problems, we take a considerate approach and provide a caretaker who is well-versed in dialogue and interaction to aid you in making the most of your life. If necessary, our expert caregiver will assist you in using diversified equipment, such as an assisted ventilation machine, or a feeding tube, while actively managing your medications.
