Dementia: Signs, Prevention & Treatment

LBD PCN member physician, Dr. Trevpr Byers and LBD PCN Geriatric Nurse, Carla Moore, operate the Leduc Eldercare Consultation Team one day per week out of the Leduc Community Hospital.

The goal of this program is to ensure seniors living in Leduc, Beaumont, Devon, Calmar and Leduc County enjoy optimal health and quality of life while remaining in the community for as long as possible.

The team provides consultation to seniors experiencing the following:

  • cognitive/behavioural concerns
  • functional decline (falls, mobility issues)
  • review of medications
  • capacity assessment
Recently Dr. Byers was interviewed by the Leduc Representative about dementia. Please read the article, here: Dementia: Signs, Prevention & Treatment
