Making the Most of Your Telehealth Visit

Friday, June 19, 2020 | 3:00-3:30 PM

As healthcare changes during this current COVID-19 pandemic and more and more healthcare providers are moving to telehealth, hear from a dementia care expert about what this means for your loved one with dementia and you as a dementia caregiver. We’ll explore questions like: What should you expect from a telehealth visit? and What should your provider expect from you?

Maureen C. Dale, MD
UNC School of Medicine
Assistant Professor, Division of Geriatric Medicine
Medical Director, Inpatient Geriatrics Service
Director for Education and Clinical Care, Geriatric Fellowship Program

She serves as a primary care doctor for older adults in the Triangle area, and helps them manage their chronic illnesses, including dementia.

As the daughter of a primary care doctor in rural Virginia, she has a passion for taking care of patients in the clinic and in the hospital, and has worked on quality improvement projects to make transitions out of the hospital safer for patients, their primary care physicians, and their caregivers.
