MIDDLETOWN, Conn. Oct. 13, 2022—MediTelecare™, the nation’s leading provider of behavioral telehealth and tele-technology services to residents of post-acute and long-term care facilities, recruited employees and volunteers to join their fundraising efforts and participate in the Alzheimer’s Association’s Greater Hartford Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

MediTelecare’s™ Senior Vice President of Business Development & Customer Experience, Bernadette Greatorex, recently joined the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter Board of Advisors to further drive both organizations’ efforts in the fight against Alzheimer’s.
“Alzheimer’s disease research and care is a cause that has always been extremely important to me, so it’s gratifying to be able to help the Alzheimer’s Association through my service on the board and MediTelecare’s™ continued fundraising efforts,” said Greatorex. “I know every dollar, no matter the amount, moves research closer to a cure for Alzheimer’s every day.”
“Bernadette Greatorex’s involvement as a board member at the Connecticut Chapter has been invaluable,” said Ginny Hanbridge, Executive Director, Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. “Her ongoing leadership in gathering support for the Walk To End Alzheimer’s in Eastern CT has made a tremendous difference, and she demonstrates her passion for our mission on a daily basis. We are very fortunate Bernadette is so committed to the Alzheimer’s Association.”
