SNHealth receives visit from Peter Franchot, Maryland Comptroller
(December, 2017) Shore Neurocognitive Health received a visit from Peter Franchot, the Comptroller from the State of Maryland on Friday, December 15, 2017. Mr. Franchot voiced strong support for the work that SNHealth is doing, including providing diagnosis and treatment of older adults with dementia and mental health issues. The role of caregivers was recognized as a strong component of helping the older adult have a quality of life, and to remain in the community.
Mr. Franchot proposed that the State advocate for voluntary "mental health checkups", just as they do so for medical checkups. The challenges that individuals encounter in everyday life, such as caring for a loved one with dementia, at times creating issues such as depression and anxiety. Mr. Franchot stated that these issues should not lead to stigma, but instead treatment and support. State Senator Addie Eckardt asked practitioners at SNHealth to collaborate on the development of such a program. We look forward to working with local and state officials on the promotion of support and services to individuals as identified by Mr. Franchot.
