Housing & In-Home Care
For person-to-person info regarding HD patient in-home care options & problem solving, call Tiffany Treadway directly: (714) 290-7766. Tiffany works in the home care industry & is a "real" person familiar with Huntington's - please call to ask questions about: - insurance coverage for in-home care - family co-op daycare - advancing housing options in Orange County (we are looking for a donation home or land to be used exclusively for HD patient care) - specialized, personalized needs - sound advice on what to do for the "in between" stages of HD

Advance directives for HD individuals and their families
The Advance Directives Workbook is intended to guide you in making decisions about your future. Although this was designed for Huntington’s disease patients and their families, it can be a useful guide for others. Please note that we are calling this a “workbook” because it is not a legal document. Use it as a guide for discussions with your family about your feelings and wishes.
