Cheryl is working with the Institute for Success in Aging at Greenville Health System to research the effect that exposures to environmental stimuli such as music and images may have on cognitive ability, engagement, and dementia-related disordered behavior among patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders (ADRD). The research is not only focused on enhancing the quality of life for those diagnosed with ADRD but their caregivers as well. She is also developing health coaching models for older adults with GHS providers.
