New information resource: Maintaining weight for health with MND

Research has found that planning ahead for the most appropriate kinds of support, equipment and meals can help with maintaining weight for health with MND, and quality of life.

To help make planning ahead easier MND Australia has just published two new sources of information. The information is for people living with MND, their loved ones and health and other professionals supporting them:

The resources have information about:

  • who can provide support for meals and meal planning
  • making decisions for peace of mind
  • being mindful about eating and drinking
  • adjustable or light weight cutlery (spoons, knifes, forks), and
  • what research and clinical recommendations say about things that help.

You can access the information on the links above or through MND Connect either directly through or through the Information & Support section of the MND Australia website.
