Use of Video vs. Phone, Communication Challenges with Contact Restrictions | Caregiver Check-In in COVID-19

This was one of the most resonant and emotionally charged questions raised by family caregivers and discussed with Dr. Sadavoy and other caregivers in attendance at our 2nd Caregiver Check-In event, held on May 14th.
