The Huntington Disease Society of America (HDSA) publishes several excellent guidebooks regarding behaviors for caregivers (see resources).

The fact that substantial expansions of maternally transmitted alleles with as few as 36 repeats have occurred provides evidence that expansions of large maternal intermediate alleles into the disease range are theoretically possible . (c) Age of the transmitting parent: Some studies have suggested a specific effect of paternal age on the risk for intermediate allele expansion, with increasing paternal age associated with higher instability of the CAG repeat number . (d) Predisposing haplotypes-: Intermediate alleles that are ascertained because they had already undergone an expansion are more likely to demonstrate instability than alleles that are incidentally ascertained from the general population  Further work has delineated specific haplotypes that are prone to expansion .
