Calling our Arizona members living alone with Mild Cognitive Impairment!

By Dr. Dona Locke, HABIT AZ Director, @DrDonaLocke


Back in May of 2018, I posted an article about living alone with MCI. I wanted to revisit this issue again as I'm a provider at Mayo Clinic in Arizona and collaborating with a colleague at Arizona Status University, Dr. David Coon, on the topic. Dr. Coon is leading focus groups to better understand the needs of our patients living alone with MCI, and I wanted to give all our Arizona followers an opportunity to be involved if interested. Our ultimate goal is to revise our existing interventions or develop new ones to better meet your needs. So, if you are in the Phoenix area (or surrounding communities like Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Glendale, Peoria, Chandler, Tempe, etc.) and living alone with MCI (even if you have outside support), we hope we can get your point of view. Dr. Coon will be conducting focus groups sometime in the next couple of months. If you are interested, please call the ASU coordinator at 602-496-1239! You can also review this flyer for more information.

Hello: In the past my OT said I should keep writing ( I was in a coma for five weeks after breaking my neck). I hope this small article is helpful. Dr. Ron Rubenzer Your well being is my commitment.
