Huntington’s disease, also known as Huntington’s chorea, is an inherited disorder that results in the death of brain cells. The earliest symptoms are often subtle problems with mood or mental abilities. A general lack of coordination and an unsteady gait often follow. The progressive nature of Huntington’s disease means that a tailored approach to care provision is crucial, enabling care packages to evolve over time to meet changing needs. We help prepare for how it may progress and what action might need to be taken then.
At EnViva Complex Care, we ensure we build complex care in the home around the symptoms, needs, wishes and the chosen lifestyle of every client with Huntington’s disease to create bespoke care designed to maximise independence and quality of life.
Our carers enable clients to maintain skills and mobility as far as possible while supporting them in learning new skills to assist with independence.
