Psychology - Dr. Melissa Henston

She explains that getting older is a unique process, requiring self-acceptance and awareness to life values in order to achieve successful aging. Dr. Henston diligently works with families who are facing problems that may develop as loved ones transition into needing more care and performs neuropsychological evaluations on older clients to help them understand cognitive issues that can arise with aging. Dr. Henston's guide outlines the 5 steps to take during a visit with your loved ones to inform the timing of your search for nursing or retirement homes in Las Vegas.

Alzheimer's Expert - Dr. Wes Ashford
