At NICE we believe that it is not only the person with the movement disorder who is affected by it but the whole family. Living with a movement disorder is challenging but equally challenging is living alongside a person who has a movement disorder. Both sides present with their own unique challenges. Whilst our direct services can help address the needs of the person with a movement disorder we also value our carers sessions to support family members.
Family members may attend:
The direct services alongside their partner
Reablement activities helping to show how learning can be applied in everyday situations
Diagnosis specific carers groups aimed at sharing advice, ideas and information with other carers in a similar situation
Topics for workshops and/or support groups are decided by those attending. Conductors will facilitate the transition of learning from NICE to the home environment.
