Neurological conditions result from damage to the brain, spinal column or nerves, caused by illness or injury. Some neurological conditions are life-long and people can experience onset at any time in their lives. There are also conditions which have a sudden onset due to injury or illness, such as a head injury or stroke, or cancers of the brain and spine.
Some neurodegenerative conditions, such as multiple sclerosis and motor neurone, affect people mainly in adulthood and will cause deterioration over time, affecting a person’s quality of life and their ability to live independently. Some neurological conditions are life threatening, most of them severely affect people’s quality of life and many cause life-long disability.

If clinical support is required, we will build specialised care support team enabling advanced care and support services for the clients and their families. We provide not just practical, but also emotional and psychological support.
We encourage our clients to maintain their independence by accessing the community including interests and support groups as well as developing collaborative working relationships with all community and hospital support teams involved in their care and support.
