Defining unique needs for palliative, hospice care in Huntington disease
from Neurology Advisor
The course of Huntington disease can take decades to fully evolve from the early hallmarks of chorea, mood disturbances, and mild cognitive impairment to end-stage disease in which patients often die from complications of dementia and/or significant decline in motor function.1 Palliative and hospice care play an important role in the long-term management of HD, including ongoing symptom relief measures, caregiver support, and end-of-life care.
