The numbers of people with MND are increasing in line with Scotland’s “Ageing Population.” There are now more over 50’s than there have ever been. More than half of Scotland’s population is now over the age of 45 and this proportion continues to increase. We know that certain diseases are more commonly associated with age, and MND is one of them. Over the last four years we have seen the number of MND cases our Care Team are dealing with increase from about 250 to about 370, sometimes more. With this 50% increase in cases in the last four years no Social Work Department/Community Helath Partnership, Care Home or non-specialist geriatric/gerontolgy unit can afford to ignore MND.
