At OhioHealth, caring for our neuroscience patients and their families goes beyond a hospital stay or office appointment. We provide our patients and the community access to organizations, support groups, classes and events throughout Ohio to help you manage your neurological condition.
to help you or your loved one understand and manage the condition. From providing information about chronic conditions, to referring you to local resources, to offering support groups and classes, we are with you every step of the way.
When a loved one is diagnosed with a medical condition, family members may search for information online to better understand the condition, diagnosis and long-term plan. Searching for information can be overwhelming, which is why we created The Dempsey Family Education and Resource Center. The Dempsey Center is staffed by a team including trained nurses, licensed social workers and volunteers to help patients and families:
Learn more about a health condition through one-on-one interactions and education with a nurse or social worker
Navigate health and wellness information with computers, tablets and written materials
Find free classes and support groups and get connected with community resources
Provide emotional support
