Caregiver Education & Library

The Lynne Ruffin-Smith Library

Imagine that you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disorder. Once this brutal fact sinks in, what’s your next move?

Dylan Wint, MD, Las Vegas Legacy Neuroscience Education Chair, hopes you go back to school — figuratively. Dr. Wint routinely urges patients and caregivers to learn as much as they can. He places education among an array of nonmedical tactics that constitute a core part of treatment and lead to better outcomes.

Cleveland Clinic Nevada providers discuss the impact on patients of being homebound due to COVID-19 and how philanthropy can ease the burden.


Our Free e-Library Contains the Knowledge You Need to Be Powerful

The Lynne Ruffin-Smith e-Library is a great place to find out about the brain conditions treated at Cleveland Clinic Nevada.

In addition to those who are homebound and appreciate the convenience of 24/7 access to a world of information, many are long-distance caregivers seeking to understand what a loved one faraway might be experiencing.

Feel free to browse our e-Library. If you want to check out materials, you’ll need an e-Library card number. To obtain your card number, contact the library at 702.483.6033 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or anytime at
