Huntington’s disease

As the only facility in Ireland that provides the high level of specialised care required for people with Huntington’s disease, it is one of our key focus areas. Alongside patient care, we also provide family support.

Huntington’s disease is a rare hereditary degenerative disorder that affects movement, speech, mood, behaviour, cognition, and more. There is currently no cure for Huntington’s disease, with the focus of treatment to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.
