Care and support is provided through the provision of information, advice, practical assistance and personal support to people with the diagnosis, their families, carers, former carers, health professionals and service providers -  view the MND Victoria brochure (PDF, 2.8MB).

People with MND can decide their own preferred level of involvement, for example, initially they may wish only to receive the MND News. Alternatively, they might find it useful to meet with a local MND Advisor, who can visit at home, provide information about support services in the area, and assist in linking into those services if required.

There is also Government support available for people with MND either through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or Aged Care.
