HD can lead to social isolation for a variety of reasons; our care team understand the complexities of HD and the effects on the individual with HD and their family’s social life.
We appreciate that as HD progresses, it can seem easier and more comfortable to stay home and watch television; however it is well documented that those with HD who have engaged in social day care can make long-lasting friendships that enhance their lives and the benefits of social contact can enhance quality of life.
Our care team understand that social situations can be stressful for anyone and especially those with HD. We are aware of the difficulties the individual with HD has and we can provide an environment that is suitable for social contact with the appropriate level of stimulation, rest and activity based on the individual’s needs.
