MIMA Healthcare facilities specialize in the treatment of Huntington’s Disease (HD).
Huntington’s Disease is an inherited disorder that leads to progressive degenerative changes in the brain.
Clinical manifestations generally appear in mid-life, and may include impairment of coordination, gait and mental function accompanied by uncontrolled repetitive abnormal movements called chorea. Difficulty with speech and swallowing are common. Changes in personality, dementia and behavioral disorders often occur. The disease is progressive over a period of years, and most afflicted individuals ultimately require considerable medical and personal care.
Our program is tailored to meet the individual needs of each resident and designed to help preserve the highest possible level of physical and psycho-social function. Residents are afforded maximal freedom of movement and independent decision-making.
At MIMA Healthcare, we are absolutely committed to preserving personal dignity and providing quality care for our residents and their families in a pleasant, supportive and secure environment.
