Neurological conditions are disorders that affect the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. They can impact a person’s physical and cognitive abilities and often require specialised care and support. Valorum Care Group recognises the diverse needs of individuals with neurological conditions and is dedicated to offering a safe and nurturing environment tailored to their unique requirements.

  • Cerebral Palsy:

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a neurological condition that affects muscle control and movement. It is often caused by damage to the developing brain, typically occurring before or during birth. Individuals with CP may experience mobility, coordination, and muscle tone difficulties. At Valorum Care Homes, our teams of skilled professionals provide personalised care and therapy to improve the quality of life for residents with CP, focusing on enhancing mobility, communication, and independence.

  • Epilepsy:

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterised by recurrent seizures. Seizures occur due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain, leading to temporary disruptions in consciousness, movements, or sensations. Valorum Care Homes are well-equipped to support residents with epilepsy, ensuring their safety during seizures and offering medical management to minimise their occurrence.

  • Huntington’s Disease

Huntington’s disease is a genetic neurodegenerative disorder that affects muscle coordination and cognitive function. It often manifests in mid-adulthood and progressively worsens over time. Valorum Care Homes provide a supportive environment for individuals with Huntington’s disease, offering specialised care and therapies to manage symptoms and enhance their overall well-being.

  • Hydrocephalus

Hydrocephalus is a condition characterised by an excess buildup of cerebrospinal fluid within the brain’s cavities, leading to increased pressure and potential damage. Symptoms may include headaches, vision problems, and difficulties with balance. At Valorum Care Homes, our team are experienced in monitoring and managing hydrocephalus, ensuring residents receive appropriate medical attention and care.

  • Korsakoff’s Syndrome

Korsakoff’s Syndrome is a neurological disorder often associated with chronic alcoholism and severe thiamine (Vitamin B1) deficiency. It primarily affects memory and cognitive function. Valorum Care Homes offer specialised support and therapies to help individuals with Korsakoff’s Syndrome regain cognitive abilities and improve their quality of life.

  • Motor Neurone Disease

Motor Neurone Disease (MND), also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), is a progressive neurological condition that affects nerve cells responsible for controlling muscles. Over time, individuals with MND may experience muscle weakness, paralysis, and difficulty breathing. Valorum Care Homes provide comprehensive care for MND residents, including respiratory support, physical therapy, and emotional support for both residents and their families.

  • Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune neurological condition that affects the central nervous system. It can lead to a wide range of symptoms, including fatigue, mobility issues, and cognitive difficulties. Valorum Care Homes offer a holistic approach to managing MS, providing therapies, dietary support, and psychological care to enhance the quality of life for residents.

  • Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular Dystrophy is a group of genetic disorders that lead to progressive muscle weakening and wasting. It can impact mobility and independence. Valorum Care Homes are dedicated to empowering residents with Muscular Dystrophy through personalised care plans, physiotherapy, and assistive technology devices to promote mobility and maintain their dignity.

  • Spina Bifida

Spina Bifida is a congenital condition where the spinal column does not fully close during fetal development, resulting in damage to the spinal cord and nerves. Depending on the severity, individuals with Spina Bifida may experience mobility issues, bowel and bladder dysfunction, and hydrocephalus. Valorum Care Homes provides specialised care, including physiotherapy, urological management, and accessibility modifications to ensure a comfortable living environment.
