Neurology Support Services

Comprehensive Neurology Support and Resources for Patients and Families

Loyola Medicine provides a multitude of neurology support services and resources to help you and your family before, during and after a neurological event or condition.  These services include:

  • Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Memory Disorders Clinic — This program helps with disease-related memory problems that interfere with the activities of daily living. Your neurologist will determine what has been causing recent memory problems and lay out an individualized treatment plan.
     
  • Biofeedback — This therapy gives patients greater awareness and control over such things as stress and heart rate.
     
  • Caretaker support — We work closely with patients who need supervision and their caretakers, providing education about neurological conditions and guidance on the most beneficial community resources.
     
  • Genetic testing — Genetic tests may provide more information about the variants of different diseases or help couples determine if their children have inherited or could inherit a neurological condition.
     
  • Geropsychiatric assessment — This evaluation determines if and to what degree psychiatric changes are affecting a senior patient.
     
  • Neurobehavioral rehabilitation — Your doctor will provide therapies that can empower you to handle behavioral and medical issues brought on by brain injury, stroke or progressive conditions.
     
  • Neurology rehabilitation — Your team will help you to regain or improve upon skills such as walking, talking, muscle control and the activities and tasks of everyday living.
