        Hi Shaun wheadon

        Each hospice tends to work a little bit differently but they can be an excellent source of support. People's perceptions of hospice can often be a little bit different to what hospices actually do. They are there to ensure that someone has the best possible quality of life and provide symptom management which can be very beneficial when someone has MND.

        We produce an information sheet on hospices which might be useful and can be found here

        If you have any questions or concerns then please do feel free to contact us at MND Connect on 0808 802 6262 or at [email protected]. We are available Monday-Friday 9am-5pm and 7pm-10:30pm.

        Best Wishes
