Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) May 23, 2014
On April 24, 2014 host Tom Pechar welcomed into his studio Dr. Len Lecci with MARS Memory Health Network and Roxanne Noble with Noble Care Management. Together they discussed what role they play in each organization, and how they are helping the senior community in the greater Wilmington N.C. area.
Dr. Len Lecci is the Director of Clinical Services at MARS and a Professor of Psychology at UNCW. According to Lecci, MARS is a facility that “focuses on early detection of memory decline in order to facilitate intervention before people get too far along in memory loss process.”
As a checkup from the neck up, MARS does not replace primary doctor visits, but they do approach memory loss differently. Instead of waiting for an occurrence showing memory decline, Lecci and involved doctors have developed a more proactive protocol. Lecci suggests engaging in physical activity, a mentally healthy lifestyle, and a healthy diet to help with the onset of memory loss.
Roxanne Noble is a clinical patient advocate. Noble Care Management assists patients as they navigate clinical issues on a broad spectrum. Having been a nurse for nearly 30 years prior to starting this company, Noble has found that elder patients need assistance with many common problems, such as paperwork, medical dosages, and doctor visits. Noble will visit a patient directly in their home and work with them on a daily basis.
