Bill was among the Memory & Movement Charlotte’s first patients, a distinguished judge robbed of his health by Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia. His seven-year ordeal ended with his death in 2015.
Today, his wife remains deeply grateful that they did not take this journey alone. “The minute I walked into the Center,” says his wife, “my world changed.” Frustrated by a 30-minute neurologist’s appointment every six months and desperate for information and to know what to expect, she turned to Memory & Movement Charlotte.
Their first appointment with Dr. Edwards lasted two hours. At subsequent appointments, she was able to share her concerns and ask her questions. The entire staff shared time, resources and caregiving counsel and tender understanding.
“The Center was lifesaving for me, his caregiver,” she says. “They gave me the moral support to hang in, and the tools and time I needed.”
