We provide support for those with Huntington’s Disease and their families.
If you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, you have not only the challenge of caring for them on your hands, but are also facing an emotional time knowing that you could have inherited this uncurable disease that affects roughly 30,000 Americans. With psychiatric, cognitive, and motor deficits, Huntington’s Disease is difficult for both the patient and their family to contend with.
While most people think of assisted living facilities being for senior living and the challenges that the elderly face, our caring residences are open to those with Huntington’s Disease, even if they are far younger, as this disease can begin presenting symptoms as early as the 30s. We are equipped to provide support whether your loved one is dealing with personality changes, depression, forgetfulness, impaired judgement, unsteady gait, swallowing difficulties, involuntary movements, slurred speech, or any other symptoms.
We are experienced with Huntington’s Disease and have seen it sometimes get misdiagnosed, especially since it includes symptoms that are common with other diseases, such as ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Our care is the same – compassion, assistance with those tasks your loved one is struggling with, and supervision 24/7. Our caring staff will make certain your loved one is treated with respect and dignity. Our comfortable home setting with experienced caregivers will make them feel at ease.
If you have any questions or would like to tour one of our facilities in the Piedmont Triad, North Carolina area and discuss our care for those with Huntington’s Disease, don’t hesitate to contact us.
