We at Cypress HomeCare Solutions are making a continuing effort to stay abreast of issues and progress made within the areas that affect our clients each and every day. Last month, In an series that we call, “Allow us to Introduce…,” brought to our Caregiving community by Cypress HomeCare Solutions and Bivens and Associates, we were honored to be visited by leading neurologist, Dr. Marwan Sabbagh, to discuss some topics in his book called, The Alzheimer’s Answer. Topics included supplements, Down Syndrome, clinical trials, the insulin study and the clip regarding football players and veterans with TBI (traumatic brain injury).
