What Is Huntington's Disease?

Huntington’s disease is a progressive condition that causes nerve cells in the brain to break down. Approximately 7,000 people are living with Huntington’s Disease in the UK.

The condition is caused by a mutation in a singular gene, which means if a parent has Huntington’s disease there is a 50% chance that their children will also develop the condition. Symptoms usually develop between the ages of 30 and 50 years and symptoms progress for the next 10 to 20 years. Symptoms include:

  • Difficulty with concentration and memory 
  • Stumbling
  • Involuntary movements or fidgeting
  • Personality changes
  • Mood swings
  • Problems with swallowing, speaking and breathing
  • Mobility issues
  • Depression

A Day In The Life With Sara

"A day in my life is very unpredictable and yet fulfilling at the same time. Most days are really good, especially when at the end of my day my client is completely comfortable with everything I have done to help them. However, other days are a little more work, particularly when dealing with episodes of confusion. It always helps to remember that my client is also human and has good and bad days just as I do."

The Benefits of Huntington's Disease Home Care

People diagnosed with Huntington’s disease are relatively young, so the idea of moving to an old people’s home is upsetting and unsettling. Most people with Huntington’s disease prefer to receive care at home in a familiar setting surrounded by people they know.

Our care assistants can help people with Huntington’s disease to maintain their independence by assisting with a wide variety of tasks. These might include:

  • Personal care
  • Medication reminders
  • Support with exercise or physiotherapy
  • Escorting to appointments and social events
  • Cooking and general housekeeping, such as cleaning and laundry

Our Care packages are bespoke

At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.

We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.

We're fully regulated

Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited to ensure we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.

We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice

Our carers are fully vetted & trained

At Tiggo Care, all of our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.
