Providing bespoke care nationwide for clients with spinal injuries and neurological conditions
TCC supports individuals with Huntington’s Disease and are developing relationships with the Huntington’s Disease Association (HAD) https://www.hda.org.uk/huntingtons-disease).
It is estimated that some 8,000 individuals in the UK display the symptoms of the disease but a further 32,000 carry the faulty gene.
Huntington’s disease is an illness caused by a faulty gene in your DNA (the biological ‘instructions’ you inherit which tell your cells what to do). If you have Huntington’s, it affects the body’s nervous system – the network of nerve tissues in the brain and spinal cord that co-ordinate your body’s activities.
Huntington’s can cause changes with movement, learning, thinking and emotions. Once symptoms begin, the disease gradually progresses, so living with it means having to adapt to change, taking one day at a time.
Although there is, as yet, no cure, you can learn to manage symptoms more effectively to improve quality of life.
TCC believe that personalised care support packages can enable individuals to maintain their independence at home.
