HIGHLY PERSONALISED MND CARE FOR JACK
Jack is living with motor neurone disease (MND) and requires numerous complex interventions. When Prestige Nursing & Care started caring for Jack, one of the most important things for him was that he was able to have time to himself to watch the TV programmes he liked, whilst his wife was able to have respite from caring for him.
It was imperative to both Jack and his wife that he was able to be cared for in his own home and not be cared for in clinical environment or specialist care setting.A care team was carefully selected so they would meet not just Jack’s clinical needs, but that they were aligned to how both Jack and his wife wished to enjoy life and their time together. The care team considered various activities they could engage Jack’s wife in so that Jack could have the ‘me’ time he craved, whilst the arrangement ensured she did not feel guilty about not being by his side.
Jack’s motor neurone care package started as night-time care, whilst his wife rested and slept, but given the level of his needs and interventions required, it quickly became a 24-hour care service. The provision of our tailored care package meant that he was able to stay in the comfort of his own home and not endure a move into a clinical care setting, away from his beloved home.
