Providing

Improving Quality of Life for Individuals with Huntington’s Disease and ALS

Each year in the United States, some 2,000 people are diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, and more than 5,000 are diagnosed with ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Approximately 30,000 Americans are currently living with HD,** and 15 new individuals are diagnosed with ALS each day. These neurodegenerative diseases cannot be cured, which leads to the demand for patient-centered care from skilled health care professionals. Our program is the first of its kind in Upstate New York, providing comprehensive care from onset through the progression of the disease for these residents.
