At Nuvance Health, you have access to more of the services you need close to home. Skilled neurologists who specialize in cognitive disorders like dementia guide your care. The team sees patients in a timely manner, so you receive the services that help you move forward with your life. Highlights of our program include:
Timely, accurate diagnosis
Dementia symptoms occur for many reasons, including medication side effects and vascular diseases that limit blood flow to the brain. We accurately pinpoint the cause, so you receive prompt, appropriate care. We also detect Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in earlier stages, so you can start treatment as soon as possible.
Nuvance Health is one of the few programs in the region offering neuropsychology testing. This exam provides information about the specific cognitive skills you struggle with and their severity. Periodic testing once you start treatment helps us adjust care plans to meet your changing needs.
Having problems with cognitive skills can make it difficult to describe the challenges you face. With your permission, we talk to your loved ones about your symptoms and treatments. This open line of communication helps us assess treatment progress and coordinate additional services when necessary.
Nuvance Health actively partners in research to advance Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care. These efforts put national clinical trials and promising new care methods within your reach. If you are eligible, we explain how a trial might help and together determine whether you should participate.
