Huntington’s Disease

Supporting people and the families of people who have Huntington’s Disease to live safely at home.

Superior Healthcare provides tailored, nurse managed packages of care and support for people who have Huntington’s Disease and complex underlying health needs, to live safely at home.

Huntington’s Disease is a progressive brain disorder that causes uncontrolled movements, emotional problems, and loss of thinking ability. Once symptoms begin, the disease gradually progresses, so living with it means having to adapt to change.

Superior Healthcare provides care and support for people who have Huntington’s Disease and underlying health conditions.

With the support of a team of specialist carers, support workers and nurses including paediatric nurses who have completed specialist training, we help our clients to live safely at home.

Specialist needs

Superior Healthcare understands that clients who have Huntington’s Disease may have other complex health needs and we support:

Huntington’s Disease

  • Huntington’s Disease is not something you can catch; it is inherited. Every child conceived naturally to a parent who carries the Huntington’s gene has a 50% chance of inheriting it.
  • A genetic test can find out if you have the faulty gene.
  • You can live with the faulty gene for years without symptoms, but if you do have it, at some stage you will develop symptoms. Doctors cannot tell you when this will be.
  • Huntington’s disease affects men and women. It usually develops between the ages of 30 and 50, but can start at any age. If you develop symptoms before the age of 20, this is known as Juvenile Huntington’s disease.
