We have launched a specialist service to offer care and support for people living with Huntington’s Disease. We are dedicated to delivering first class care that is tailored to the needs, choices and preferences of each individual in a safe, responsive and homely environment.
When Huntington’s disease progresses, many individuals struggle to cope in their own environment and can no longer be cared for safely at home. That’s where our specialist care services come in. We are able to provide the compassionate and tailored care needed to support each individual, adapting to changing requirements along the way.
We believe that with a compassionate and person-centred approach, we can support individuals to live life to the fullest whilst helping to maintain and build social relationships with family, friends and the community. We understand the importance of sensitive care and support to improve an individuals’ physical and emotional wellbeing.
From pre-admission assessments through to our one-to-one care reviews, our team will develop a care and support plan that is fully supportive in providing guidance along with subtle cues and direction needed in helping to live fulfilling, independent and dignified lives.
Our team take the time to get to know each individual on a personal level and will consider every aspect of their life, helping them to find a place where their emotional and physical well-being is optimised.
At the Athena Healthcare Group, we provide a multi-disciplinary approach with the intention of maximising the quality of life whilst maintaining functional independence.
Our in-house chefs prepare freshly cooked meals every day and are also trained in tailoring menus to meet the individual’s dietary requirements. We believe that a healthy, well-balanced diet will support residents both physically and mentally.
Lifestyle and wellbeing are a big part of our ethos – to ensure that those living in our care get the most out of each day. Our Lifestyle Co-ordinators provide wellbeing support through an enriching daily activities programme in conjunction with the individual’s care plan.
