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 to 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 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.

Dr Leahy includes me in all decisions, she showed me my brain scan & explained why we are pausing the infusions. She respects everything I'm able to do without assistance.

Dr. Leahy and the nurse that gave me the cognitive test were so sweet and patient with me. Dr. Leahy told me that she will call me and explain the results of my blood test. I like that personal touch.

Dr Leahy is the best! I am so thankful for her. She is just as concerned about me, the caregiver as she is about my husband.

We have already recommended Dr. Leahy to others. She is very kind and caring. She answered all of our questions and didn't make us feel rushed in any way.

A very good experience I took the time to explain things. Also gave me a pamphlet on the subject of my care.

2nd visit, not likely to return. First visit was a short get to know you and then scheduled the 2nd one for 6 months out. The second one was a "what would you like me to do for you today" after we told her concerns. She came highly recommended but doesn't listen, doesn't have a conversation with you about your concerns and don't ever ask me what can I do for you today like your irritated.
