"My wife has Huntington's Disease and after some years of increasingly frequent respite care, she has been resident in Upper Millaton, Kernow House, since February 2014. I visit at least twice every week and frequently observe the team of Care Assistants looking after other residents and I have repeatedly been struck by the empathy and intuition which you can see them using to care for each individual resident. We recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and the team provided a special cake, a card and a special golden wedding photograph. On that morning (a Saturday) one of the carers came in on her day off (unpaid) to do my wife's hair in the way she likes it. While that was a special day, the care that the core team of carers provide is generally excellent and so important for patients with HD who are otherwise frequently misunderstood by staff who have little experience of this rare genetic condition."
