Living with HD: An Information/Support Group Program  

The Manitoba Huntington Disease Resource has offered the Information/Support Group program for the past 6 years. Sessions are held 4 times per year and include a guest speaker presenting on a topic that addresses living with HD. We have covered a wide variety of topics over the years including HD symptoms & treatment, research, depression, memory strategies, home care services, grief & loss, power of attorney, stress, swallowing difficulties, etc. The sessions also provide individuals the opportunity too meet others who are living with HD. We are always looking for suggestions of topics and guest speakers. Please contact Sandra Funk with your suggestions at (204) 772-4617 or sfunk@hsc-ca.org or by mail at the above address.
