  • St. Paul's House

The Memory Care Coalition of Chicago is a community of organizations, support groups, and healthcare providers, all dedicated to improving the quality of life for seniors and their caregivers.  

As seniors age and face increasing concerns about memory issues, it can be challenging to find reliable resources.  Even within our own community of providers, it can be difficult to fully understand all the services which may complement our own work.

The Memory Care Coalition of Chicago was established to collaborate, share resources, and in turn, improve access to comprehensive care options.  This often means the education of clinicians and healthcare professionals, as well as the spread of knowledge among seniors and their loved ones. 

As information, science and resources change, the Memory Care Coalition of Chicago members work together to ensure that seniors receive the best quality care and support they need as they face challenges with memory.

Great Lakes Clinical Trials is proud to sponsor the launching of THE DWELLING PLACE Women's Fellowship Brunch at The Crystal Light Banquet Facility, 8400 South Cicero in Chicago on Saturday, April 1, 2017. 

Dean Hervochon, Co-Founder of Great Lakes Clinical Trials, will address the impact Alzheimer's Disease and memory loss has had on the African American population.  "Many Americans dismiss the warning signs of Alzheimer's, believing that these symptoms are a normal part of aging, commented Mr. Hervochon.  "This is of even greater concern for African-Americans, who are two times more likely to develop late-onset Alzheimer's disease than whites and less likely to have a diagnosis of their condition, resulting in less time for treatment and planning. By working together, we hope to reduce the risk factors and reverse the growing trend of Alzheimer's disease among African-Americans."

The mission of The Dwelling Place is to provide an environment of empowerment and discipleship through the gifts of hospitality, while sharing our stories and welcoming yours. The group aims to equip and provide for women and children in need of restorative care through various resources. Dedicated women, committed to the call.

The brunch is at no cost. The event is non-denominational and ALL ARE WELCOME!

Free Seminar: Treatment-Resistant Depression

  • Great Lakes Clinical Trials

LEARN MORE ABOUT TREATMENT-RESISTANT DEPRESSION

Unfortunately, depression treatments don't always work. As many as two-thirds of people with depression aren't helped by the first antidepressant they try. Up to a third don't respond to several attempts at treatment.

Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) can leave you feeling hopeless and discouraged. Months or even years can go by without any relief. And after the effort it took to get help, it can be demoralizing when you're just not getting better.
