Huntington’s disease is an incurable, degenerative illness which can be mentally and physically challenging for you and your loved ones.

If you suffer from Huntington’s disease we can help you positively cope with the challenges whilst remaining comfortable and independent as possible.

Symptoms of Huntington’s disease such as involuntary movement, and difficulties with speech, usually occcur in your 30s and 40s. Although juvenile Huntington’s can begin much earlier. Personality changes such as mood swings, irritability and erratic changes in behaviour are common at the early stages, and can often be the most distressing. We understand that as brain damage progressively worsens you may find moving, feeding or communicating difficult, and become fully dependent on others. We're here to offer emotional support and companionship, to both yourself and your family, to maintain the best quality of life possible.
We understand that even simple daily tasks like getting dressed, eating or getting around the house can be frustrating and exhausting when you suffer from Huntington's. Our specialist carers are experienced and compassionate, understanding that the whole family may need our support at any stage of the Huntington’s journey.

Our assessments are friendly and informal, but ensure we capture all the information we need to support your needs.
