April is Parkinson's Awareness Month





There are many neurological diseases that cause memory loss and confusion. That is why we have created several programs to address neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Our approach is to address the unique needs of the patients as well as caregivers, then assist and guide them in ways that will help with everyday life.


By definition, Alzheimer's disease is one form of dementia, and is a progressive, degenerative brain disease. It affects memory, thinking, and behavior. Memory impairment is a necessary feature for the diagnosis of this or any type of dementia. Change in one of the following areas must also be present: language, decision-making ability, judgment, attention, and other areas of mental function and personality. The rate of progression is different for each person.


Parkinson's disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder. Alzheimer’s being first. Parkinson's disease affects the nervous system, which limits a person's ability to control various muscles. It's caused by a slow, gradual loss of certain cells in the brain. These cells make a chemical called dopamine, and this chemical is needed for muscles to work normally.


We’re here to identify and help patients and families deal with both forms of neurological diseases.
