ElderConsult has launched a Telehealth Solution for Families Dealing with Dementia

One-to-one live video consultations help caregivers navigate dementia challenges, medical or behavioral, and get answers directly from an experienced Geriatrician and elder care professionals.

"I see so many families struggling to deal with their loved one with dementia and having limited access to care from a doctor who specializes in Geriatrics or dementia," says Dr Landsverk.

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA, January 08, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- ElderConsult offers holistic treatment to patients with dementia. The ElderConsult team consists of board-certified Geriatricians who provide house calls to patients in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. Also, they offer expert training and education to families, caregivers, and professionals.

Dr Landsverk, a leader in treating agitation in dementia, pain, and medication removal, is one of 3500 Geriatricians in the US. With a surge in growth of dementia in elders, she sees the need to start a telehealth program to reach more families across the US, especially where medical facilities are not easily accessible.

Often families find themselves at a loss when caring for a loved one living with dementia. There are too many variables, too many medications, and too many doctors. The causes and symptoms lead to challenges that can overwhelm caregivers. Many resources exist but may not address an individual patient's specific situation.

Elderconsult Offers a Solution To Families Dealing with Dementia

The ElderConsult team provides one-to-one educational consultations to help families navigate dementia challenges, reviews medical information, labs, Xrays as provided, and determines steps to resolve difficult situations. These sessions are customized to address caregiving questions or medical questions. Dr Landsverk will provide a report for the primary doctor and family.

"I see so many families struggling to deal with their loved one with dementia and having limited access to care from a doctor who specializes in Geriatrics or dementia," says Dr Landsverk. "I hope to bring my experience to families and give them the attention, resources, and advice they need."

Judy B from Raleigh, North Carolina, recently met with the ElderConsult team concerning her husband's dementia.

"My husband was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia in October 2019. One doctor recommended a specific medication, and another doctor said not to take it. We had too many doctors with different opinions on how to treat him. I didn't have anyone to advise on what to expect or answer all the many questions I had. The doctors were somewhat helpful, but it was all so overwhelming and hard to watch him suffer.

Dr Landsverk, with ElderConsult, did a One-to-One Education session with me to answer all the questions I had and help me consider things I didn't even think of or know about concerning the effect of Lewy Body Dementia. She reviewed his case and medications then made recommendations, which I shared with his doctors. Even though nothing we tried would "fix" him (i.e. remove his dementia), he had a quality of life that was comforting to both of us."
