Each of our homes has a Life Skills/Activities Team to support with holistic and therapeutic treatments, and many of them have in-house Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Everyone who lives in our homes also has the support of Exemplar Health Care’s clinical experts, including our team of Behaviour Support Specialists.
This enables people to access holistic care and a range of services in a community-based home that’s closer to their friends and family, and supports them to manage their condition, which reduces unnecessary exacerbation of their symptoms and avoidable hospital admissions.
We also work closely with community teams and other professionals, where required, to ensure that people affected by Huntington’s disease receive the required support to meet all of their needs.
Our high staffing levels of Registered Nurses and trained Health Care Assistants are determined by each person’s individual needs, whether that be 2:1 or 1:1.
This enables us to work at their own pace and build trust, and provide support with all aspects of their life, leading to improved person-centred and longer-term outcomes for those affected by Huntington’s disease.
