On October 10th, Great Lakes Clinical Trials participated in a senior fair on the Luther Village Independent Living campus, associated with the Lutheran Home of Arlington Heights. Great Lakes Clinical Trials' Co-Founder, Dean Hervochon, met with dozens of seniors and their caregivers interested in issues surrounding memory care.
"We opened our research center on the campus of the Lutheran Home and Luther Village, in order to bring convenient access to cutting-edge research to these amazing seniors," commented Mr. Hervochon. "New technology has brought significant hope to those affected by memory loss and our organization is committed to finding a cure to eliminate this disease altogether."
The event was attended by more than 250 seniors, many of whom have registered for free memory assessments as part of Great Lakes Clinical Trials' Memory Monday campaign.
Great Lakes Clinical Trials operates a clinical research unit within the Wellness Center of the Lutheran Home in Arlington Heights, Illinois. The clinic is located approximately 15 miles northwest of O'Hare Airport and 30 miles northwest of downtown Chicago's "Loop". The focus of this clinic is to provide clinical research services to a senior population, primarily in the areas of Alzheimer's disease and memory loss, pain disorders and rheumatology.
Lutheran Home has been setting the standard in senior living since 1892. A faithful mission and dedication to innovation has earned the trust of generations of families and solidified the reputation of Arlington Heights’ Lutheran Home as one of the nation’s finest senior living communities. Much has changed over the years, with enhanced programs and more specialized healthcare services, but one thing remains the same: Lutheran Home’s commitment to providing exceptional, person-centered care and exceeding expectations every day. A Lutheran Life Community, Lutheran Home is empowering vibrant, grace-filled living across all generations.
The location on this campus provides direct access to research for more than 1,300 residents at the Lutheran Home as well as Luther Village, a planned residential community for active people 55 years of age and older.
In addition, the clinic serves the greater northwest suburbs of Chicago, home to over 1 million residents.
