Huntington's disease related dementia

Huntington’s disease (HD) is an inherited neurological condition that causes difficulties with movement and coordination.  It also causes cognitive impairment that gets worse over time.  Symptoms usually develop when people are between 30 and 50 years old and dementia can occur at any stage of the condition.  People typically lose their short-term memory and their planning and organisational skills.  They can also develop obsessive behaviour.

You will find more detailed information about the condition on the Huntington’s Disease Association website If you are in Northern Ireland, please visit this website
