The IMNDA provides financial assistance towards home care hours for people living with MND. This home care grant is awarded once one our nurses has completed a needs assessment. In the last 12 months alone, we have spent close to €500,000 on home care grants – this equates to more than 16,000 home care hours provided in people’s home. Essential hours needed for both our clients and their primary carer. We receive very little state or HSE funding towards this service, the majority is funded through community fundraising and campaigns like this.
“I cannot thank the IMNDA enough for the home care package we have received. It has been vital in helping me to care for my husband.”
