Memory & Movement Charlotte

Navigating complexities together 

Beautiful, unique artwork brightens the walls of Memory & Movement Charlotte. Created by patients, it serves as a reminder that behind each person is a vibrant and full life story. And each one deserves a different kind of care. 

Offering a family-focused approach to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other memory and movement disorders, Memory & Movement provides clinical diagnosis and treatment, emotional support and education for patients and caregivers as they navigate the challenges each disease presents. 

It’s a journey founder Dr. Charles Edwards knows firsthand. After a 30-year career as a cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Edwards returned to medical school for training in dementia care – inspired by his parents, who both suffered from dementia. He launched the clinic nine years ago, and it recently moved to a new, expanded facility that includes an in-house physical therapy gym and well-integrated technology, allowing family members anywhere to participate in appointments.  

Memory & Movement of Charlotte

At Memory & Movement, the foundation of care is rooted in its Time & Attention model. Every appointment lasts 60 to 90 minutes and allows patients, caregivers and members of a physician-led care team to thoroughly discuss questions and concerns. Its Take Charge! education and support program includes interactive workshops led by experts and a comprehensive online resource library. Caregiver support groups provide connections with others who understand the demands of caring for someone with a memory or movement diagnosis. 

“Memory & Movement Charlotte was lifesaving for me, his caregiver,” says the wife of  Bill, one of Memory & Movement’s first patients. Frustrated by short neurologists’ appointments and desperate for information, she turned to Memory & Movement. “They gave me the moral support to hang in, and the tools and time I needed.”
