Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association Activities
The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA, CHY 8510) is the only organisation of its kind in the country. We are dedicated to working on behalf of people living with MND and their families and carers. Our key services include home visiting by a MND nurse, financial assistance towards home care help and the supply of specialised equipment on loan. We also fund and promote research into the causes and treatments of MND.
Our aim is:
- To encourage and promote the best methods of care, education, research and treatment for people with Motor Neurone Disease throughout the State of Ireland, contributing to worldwide efforts in research and development of treatment.
- To establish and promote models of good practice in the delivery of specialised services to our patients, their families and carers, setting standards of excellence.
- To communicate widely, knowledge of Motor Neurone Disease and related disorders in order to raise awareness in the wider community.
