From changes in mood through to lack of drive, difficulties with speech or swallowing and involuntary movements, we pride ourselves on a unique understanding of the symptoms of this complex condition, and we devote ourselves to reducing the impact on people’s lives.
Communication difficulties are overcome with support from community speech and language therapists, with assistive technologies and equipment for managing communication, safety and comfort. Special care is given to food, with high calorie diets used to prevent weight loss and modified diets developed to reduce the risks associated with swallowing.
As the condition progresses, so does our level of care. Nursing teams are flexible with their approach, adapting their skills and experience to suit specific situations and needs.
We work closely with the Huntington’s Disease Association to ensure we’re providing the highest standards of care.
