Memory disorders, movement disorders and multiple sclerosis challenge families, who rise to the occasion by becoming care partners for their loved one. Patients rely heavily on their family caregivers, who often suffer tremendous stress, particularly when they lack knowledge and experience.

Our Patient and Family Services program provides the full range of no-cost programs and services that individuals and families need to feel informed, connected and supported, thus improving their coping skills and quality of life.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine

Thanks to collaboration with our Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health Las Vegas location, patients in Elko, Nevada have access to experts in evaluation, diagnosis and treatment via video-conference. Timely diagnosis is the first stop to creating an effective treatment program that vastly improves the quality of life of patients with neurological disorders.

Limited access to specialty care often delays early intervention for patients and their caregivers in rural locales.

The physicians and advanced practice clinicians from Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health address these factors in a unique way, using videoconferencing technology to connect in local communities and provide memory screening, diagnosis and treatment. Videoconference technology allows for a continuity of care for patients in their own community who would otherwise not have access to high-level specialty care from brain health experts in Las Vegas.

For those in rural communities, the benefits of seeing a Cleveland Clinic medical professional in real-time via telemedicine (videoconference) include:

  • Enjoying family support in one's own community
  • Avoiding difficult travel
  • Accessing earlier diagnosis prior to escalation
  • Medical episodes
  • Receiving patient and caregiver information
