Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association
The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) is the only organisation of its kind in the country providing specialised services to families affected by this terminal condition.
The Association cannot slow the progression of MND or change the outcome but we can alleviate the feelings of isolation and frustration. We offer consistent support to approximately 400 families across Ireland who otherwise would have nowhere else to turn. Everybody with MND has different needs at different stages of their journey and we are here to help and guide them every step of the way.
The services provided by the IMNDA are immediate and free of charge for everyone registered with the Association.
Key services include:
• Access to 4 outreach nurses directly employed by the IMNDA and funded entirely by donations.
• Access to a home care grant.
• Access to specialised equipment on loan (e.g. wheelchairs, hoists, communication aids etc).
• Access to funding towards counselling sessions for the person with MND and family members.
Your support is absolutely vital. More than 86% of our income comes from fundraising and donations.
