Living with Huntington's Disease

The thought of there being a possibility of acquiring the disease through hereditary means looms high over the lives of people with a known history of this malady. The thought of inevitable death due to this malady also makes life miserable for the person. In the early stages of the disease, the person can be trained to bring in certain changes in his life style that can help to make life better. In the latter stages of Huntington's disease, the person cannot manage his daily activities on his own. A caregiver can be of utmost help at this juncture. The surroundings of the patient should also be made injury free, to the maximum extent possible.
