Complex Neurological Conditions

Living With a Neurological Condition

A neurological condition results from disease, injury or damage to the body’s nervous system. There is a wide variety of neurological conditions and people have very different experiences.

Neurological conditions can cause a range of problems for the individual that may include physical or movement problems, altered sensation, communication, problems with memory or behaviour. People with long term neurological conditions also face complex challenges in trying to live as they would wish. Providing appropriate information, practical advice and support, together with co-ordinating health and care resources, helps to reduce these difficulties, promote health and improve quality of life.
