About the Podcast
About Dr. Chuck Edwards
Dr. Charles H. Edwards is the founding physician of Memory & Movement Charlotte. After 30 years as a cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Edwards developed a tremor in his hand that compelled him to embrace a different medical specialty. Deeply affected by caring for his parents, both of whom had dementia, he completed dementia care training at Johns Hopkins Medical Institute in Baltimore and returned to establish MMC in 2013.
The non-profit medical practice treats patients with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and related disorders – and also treats their caregivers. The practice develops a care plan for each family that includes clinical treatment, education and emotional support – and a commitment to providing the time and attention required to navigate every step of the complex journey ahead.
