Susan is caring for her father, Tom. She’s concerned about what to do if Tom has a fall and is not confident in how to best help him if he has a fall. After talking over her concerns with her MND Advisor, her Advisor arranged for training on falls prevention and lifting. They also discussed getting an Occupational Therapy home assessment and putting together a list of useful contacts in an emergency.
James has been caring for his wife, Sharon full time since her diagnosis. James wants to do everything himself but has realised that it is too much for him. John’s MND Advisor helped him organise an ACAT assessment and he now has access to support for regular gardening and cleaning.
Janice feels that her husband’s MND is progressing and that they need more support. An ACAT has been approved and they are receiving some help with cleaning and gardening, but she worries that that might not be enough in the future. Her MND Advisor has talked to her about respite options if she needs a break and will speak to the ACAT team and request a reassessment.
