MemoryCare™ is a non-profit charitable corporation, established to meet the rapidly growing need for appropriate assessment, treatment, and support for memory-impaired individuals and their families. We are located in Asheville, North Carolina.
Memory impairment affects close to half of the population over 85 and is one of the most common reasons for dependency in late life.
Expert management can make a significant difference to a memory impaired individual, and equip a caregiver with the physical and psychological resources they need.
The program's mission is three-fold:
- To provide specialized medical care to older adults with memory loss
- To support caregivers with education, counseling, and improved access to services
- To provide community education
We are devoted to a model of care that encourages participation by our patient's caregivers. Since Medicare reimbursement does not cover the services provided to educate and support caregivers, a caregiver fee is charged upon enrollment in the program. We were established as a non-profit charitable organization. This structure allows us to provide services to those who could not afford them otherwise, and to seek charitable contributions to allow growth and secure a long term future for this program in Western North Carolina. Please see "How You Can Help" for additional information on how you can support our organization.

To meet the challenging needs of caring for an older person with dementia in a timely frame MemoryCare is offering a new service. The service is primarily for caregivers not currently enrolled in MemoryCare who need help locating suitable resources to assist them in caring for their loved one. Families considering enrollment may choose to utilize this service prior to their enrollment, if they have a more immediate non-medical need. To learn more about this service please click here.
