NEW MEMORY DISORDERS CLINIC
As we know, Alzheimer’s disease is a devastating disease for patients and families, robbing a person of their memories, personality and relationships with the ones they love. With the help of the Alzheimer’s Association, the Memorial Healthcare Institute for Neurosciences has opened a multidisciplinary memory disorders clinic to help support patients and their families in our community. This clinic is designed to offer the latest in information, treatments and supports for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Dr. Leahy is a leader in developing this multidisciplinary approach for Alzheimer’s disease. She, along with her team of clinical pharmacists, nurses and home health professionals, meet with each patient and their families during this memory clinic appointment. The goal is to provide care and treatment that extends beyond the medicines and to improve the quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families. If you know of someone who might benefit from this caring, passionate and dedicated approach to patient care, please have them contact their primary care physician to learn if they might qualify for this unique clinic
