Huntington’s disease is an inherited condition that damages certain nerve cells in the brain.

Brain damage caused by Huntington's disease gets progressively worse over time and can affect movement, cognition and behaviour.  The disease is progressive with no cure, but there is much that can be done to manage the symptoms and enhance quality of life.  Initially most people manage with their condition at home, but many eventually need respite care to give the family a break, or towards the end of life, they may need admission to one of our specialist units.  Our staff understand the condition and our rehabilitation teams can help to provide the individual with the best possible quality of life, despite the nature of the disease.
