Thank you for posting your query.
It is unfortunate that your relative has MND- motor neurone disease. At present, there is no cure for MND. Riluzole
does not stop the disease progression, it may only help little bit in improving the muscle strength.
At present, please start Ryle's tube (nose-to-stomach food pipe) feeds, to prevent aspiration pneumonia
and exercises should also be done.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
