How can our Huntington’s care service help?

At Independent People Homecare, we understand that caring for a loved one living with Huntington’s disease can be a very upsetting time and put a considerable strain on families. You may assume that a residential care home is the only option however there is an alternative – Live in care.

Live-in care is where professionally trained carers experienced in Huntington’s disease provide 24/7 support and care in the home. Live-in carers are there to help you and your family manage the different challenges of Huntington’s disease without needing to move to residential care.

  • Personal care
  • Medication Administration
