HDA Family Weekend

Exemplar Health Care is looking forward to joining the Huntington’s Disease Association at their AGM and Family Weekend, taking place at the Radisson Blu East Midlands Hotel, 13th – 15th October.

The weekend is packed full of presentations, workshops and parties. Speakers include Dr Ed Wild who will give an update into current HD research, Paula Meir sharing her personal journey and Ewan McHenry; Project Coordinator, who will update everyone on news within the HDA.

Exemplar’s nurse-led team of specialists effectively manage the symptoms of those living with HD, improving lives by:

  • Reducing feelings of frustration by responding quickly
  • Leaving additional time for completion of tasks
  • Encouraging independence
  • Introducing choices and alternatives – and allowing people to make their own decisions

Communication difficulties are overcome with support from community speech and language therapists, with assistive technologies and equipment for managing communication, safety and comfort – including communication aids – identified and put in place.

We understand the major impact HD has on both service users and their families, so we actively encourage friends and family be part of daily life at our homes and be involved with care planning.

Join us at the HDA Family Weekend to learn more about how we make a difference to individuals and families living with Huntington’s Disease.
