Keeping people with MND in their own home, especially in times of crisis like this, is IMNDA’s main priority. That’s why it’s absolutely vital that we can continue to fund essential life changing equipment. Equipment like power wheelchairs, communications aids, stair lifts, suction machines and specialised beds and air mattresses are things our community cannot live without.
In the last 12 months alone, the IMNDA has spent close to €600,000 on new pieces of equipment. Essential equipment our clients desperately need.
As the Covid-19 pandemic unfolds, we need to keep people with MND out of hospital and at home with their loved ones. It’s the safest place for them to be. Having the right equipment, at the right time is absolutely crucial.
“I have just had a stair lift installed in my house and I am so thankful to you all. I know these do not come cheap and it was installed without any fuss whatsoever. While I was fine going upstairs, I was nervous coming down. A fall was inevitable. My sons find it very funny as they now say I am officially old”.
