A new center will help fill a service gap for people fighting dementia and Alzheimer's disease and their families.
Last month, Tennova's Geriatric Assessment Program closed. That left approximately 2,500 patients and their families without a place to turn for help.
Three long-time elder care providers have teamed up to open a new center to meet their needs called the Center for Memory Management.
Two of those providers include Carolyn Pointer Neil, who is a nurse with 28 years of experience, and Gene Picket, a family and psychiatric nurse practitioner. They joined us in the 10News studios to talk about the new center. You can watch that entire interview in the video above.
