Some of the conditions we help our service users and clients live with everyday.
An acquired brain injury (ABI) is an injury caused to the brain since birth. There are many possible causes, including a fall, a road accident, tumour and stroke.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. The word dementia describes a set of symptoms that can include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language.
A group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. These contrast with benign tumours, which do not spread to other parts of the body.
A group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. Signs and symptoms vary among people. Often, symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles, and tremors.
Also known as trisomy 21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21. Typically associated with physical growth delays, characteristic facial features and mild to moderate intellectual disability.
Huntington's disease (HD), also known as Huntington's chorea, is an inherited disorder that results in the death of brain cells. The earliest symptoms are often subtle problems with mood or mental abilities. A general lack of coordination and an unsteady gait usually follow.
A diagnosis of a profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) is used when a child has more than one disability, with the most significant being a learning disability. Many children diagnosed with PMLD will also have a sensory or physical disability, complex health needs, or mental health difficulties.
Is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones. Neurones are specialised cells which transmit electrical nerve impulses and so carry information from one part of the body to another. Degeneration of the motor neurones leads to weakness that gets worse over time.
Is a condition which can affect the brain and/or spinal cord, causing a wide range of potential symptoms, including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance. It's a lifelong condition that can sometimes cause severe disability, although it can occasionally be mild.
Is a group of muscle diseases that result in increasing weakening and breakdown of skeletal muscles over time. The disorders differ in which muscles are primarily affected, the degree of weakness, how fast they worsen, and when symptoms begin. Many people will eventually become unable to walk.
Neurological disorders are diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. In other words, the brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, peripheral nerves, nerve roots, autonomic nervous system, neuromuscular junction, and muscles.
Is damage to the spinal cord that causes changes in its function, either temporary or permanent. These changes translate into the loss of muscle function, sensation, or autonomic function in parts of the body served by the spinal cord below the level of the lesion.
A stroke is a brain attack. It happens when the blood supply to part of your brain is cut off. Blood carries essential nutrients and oxygen to your brain. Without blood, your brain cells can be damaged or die. This damage can have different effects, depending on where it happens in your brain.
Ventilated care can be the symptom of many complex conditions such as lung disease. A ventilator is a mechanical machine designed to move breathable air into and out of the lungs, to provide breathing for a person who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently.
