Enhancing domiciliary care provision for people living with neurological conditions in the North East

There are many people living with neurological conditions in the North East ranging from Parkinson’s disease to stroke, from multiple sclerosis to brain injury as well as migraine, muscular dystrophy and autism. The impact of neurological conditions on the individual and their family is significant and leads to enormous life style changes and frequently financial hardship and social isolation. Working with expert groups, this project produced a set of care standards for individuals living with neurological conditions in their own home which have been and continue to be tested by individuals and providers; the standards aid in empowering individuals to recruit care providers on their own terms using a personal toolkit. For those recruiting long term care or personal assistants, there will be a toolkit to help select the best training modules on neurological conditions to tailor care in the home. This project has made positive changes to services for people living with a neurological condition or brain injury.
