OCT 27 - Christine Ross, PT, DPT, GCS, CDP, MSCS
Physical Therapist @Cleveland Clinic
Physical therapy can be key in managing any of the progressive neurological diseases treated here at the clinic. Those newly diagnosed are encouraged to get in soon to learn exercise recommendations and develop work-life balance, and then throughout the continuum of disease progression learn what that might look like and how PT can help.
NOV 3 - Maileen Ulep-Reed, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC
Nurse Practitioner - Cognitive Disorders Team @Cleveland Clinic

NOV 10 - Julie McIntosh, LPN, CDP
Director of Education & Community Relations @CompassionCare Hospice
Hospice is not a place, but high-quality care that enables patients and families to focus on living as fully as possible, despite a life-limiting illness. There are many misconceptions surrounding this important Medicare benefit. Join us to learn how hospice care may help your or a loved one live fully today.
NOV 17 - Leslie Fuller, MSW, LSW
Community Advocate @Alzheimer's Association
In the course of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia verbal communication diminishes. Yet messages continue to be exchanged in non-verbal manners through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions, and body language. Learn to decode verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia and identify strategies to help communicate at each stage of the disease.
