This Cornflower Blue Day dedicate a virtual cornflower to a loved one who is living with motor neurone disease (MND) or in remembrance of someone who has died.
One of the positive things to come out of the current health situation and social isolating is the innovation and push to move things into the virtual world. Many organisations are also offering special arrangements, priority services and whole new products aimed to make self-isolating easier.
The following information has been prepared to give you an overview of all the things we have discovered over the past few weeks, with the help of our disability and health networks, that we think you might find useful.
So what is happening with education for people living with MND, their family and friends and for the service providers now that our face to face sessions are suspended?
With changing times we now have an opportunity to deliver our education programs in a different way and has opened the way for innovation in ensuring everyone still can access information when they want it. We are now working to have many of our education and carer programs available as on demand online versions.
You may have received our Winter Tax Appeal in the mail asking for your help so we can continue delivering life enhancing equipment directly to people living with MND. People like Liz* who rely on our FlexEquip service so she can spend as much time as possible with her loved ones.
We know you’re missing our Walks (so are we!) and like most of us, maybe you need a little motivation to get moving—it’s why we’ve joined forces with the other state MND Associations to bring you a virtual challenge event for these crazy times we find ourselves in, Australia Moves for MND!
