Supports from our specialists.

We pride ourselves on the specialist nature of our service. 

  • Our Support Workers are provided with specialist training and are largely dedicated to our Huntingtons and related neurological disorders service 
  • We have close relationships with our local communities and are in regular contact with condition-specific associations and support networks 
  • We work alongside specialist advisory groups who help shape our service 

A key focus of this service is supporting people to maintain their independence and continue to be involved in the community as much as possible. 

What you need to know about Huntington's disease.

Huntington’s disease is a rare, inherited disease that causes the progressive breakdown (degeneration) of nerve cells in the brain. Huntington’s disease has a broad impact on a person’s functional abilities and usually results in movement, thinking (cognitive) and psychiatric disorders.

Huntington’s disease symptoms can develop at any time, but they often first appear when people are in their 30s or 40s. If the condition develops before age 20, it’s called juvenile Huntington’s disease. When Huntington’s develops early, symptoms are somewhat different and the disease may progress faster.

With the support from our specialist team, we can provide support and advocacy to make it easier for you and your whānau.
