ReVital Cancer Rehabilitation 

Taking charge of cancer-related cognitive decline 

Join Erica Guardascione, speech-language pathologist and ReVital Cancer Rehabilitation therapist as she discusses how patients can take charge of their cancer-related cognitive decline (CRCD), a side effect experienced by many people who have had or are undergoing cancer treatment.

In this session Erica will:

  • Explain what CRCD is and what factors often cause and impact this treatment’s related side effects
  • Discuss how CRCD can impact your day-to-day activities
  • Provide guidance on how to improve your cognitive abilities
  • Share experiences of patients she and her colleagues have treated over the years who have found great support and relief through therapy

Many people affected by cancer experience some form of CRCD, but with the support of specially trained cognitive rehabilitation therapists like Erica, it is possible to improve your cognitive abilities and overall brain health.
