Memory & Movement Charlotte is an innovative, growing practice driven by our mission:
To provide clinical and diagnostic expertise, education and support to individuals with memory and movement disorders and their families, in an environment that empowers them to take charge of their journey with empathy, compassion, dignity and respect.
A Team-Led Approach to Care
Our new patient/family on-boarding process begins with a 2-hour visit conducted by an APP and RN to take a detailed history, conduct a thorough physical exam with cognitive, behavioral, and safety screenings, and to learn the main caregiver stressors. The next step is a one-hour appointment with the physician 2-4 weeks later. In the interim, the care team discusses each case and ensures that all pertinent external records are collected and any additional testing ordered to maximize the visit with the physician. All follow-up appointments are one-hour visits with approximately half the time spent focusing on caregiver needs. A separate Care Plan appointment led by a social worker and APP is scheduled for each caregiver, without the patient present, to identify and address caregiver needs.
The limited daily caseload allows us to build meaningful, trusted relationships with patients and caregivers. We see the impact of this approach every day and demand for services is growing exponentially. We must add another 1-2 physicians soon to meet the growing demand without compromising our commitment to time and attention.
