The Memory Disorders Program is designed to diagnose and treat memory disorders, including programs for different types of dementia including Alzheimer’s disease.
Dementia is defined as a decline in mental ability that is severe enough to interfere with daily life. Some memory loss can occur with the normal aging process, but dementia affects the ability to organize thoughts, use language and accurately see the visual world. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia.
Alzheimer's is a disease that affects the brain. Symptoms include forgetfulness, difficulty performing tasks, language problems, disorientation, changes in mood or behavior, and a loss of initiative to do normal daily routines. If you or a family member have concerns about memory loss or other symptoms of Alzheimer's, it is important to be evaluated by a neurologist. There are interventions and therapies available that can ease symptoms and help individuals manage daily challenges.Rehabilitative Medicine Imaging
