About Us

MemoryCare is a team of physicians, nurses, social workers and volunteers dedicated to one goal – helping individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease and other cognitive disorders live as fully as possible for as long as possible at home or in their preferred setting.  We are the only organization of our kind in western North Carolina and one of the few in the nation that focuses on equipping the caregiver with the resources they need as well as providing excellent care to their loved one.

The diagnosis of any cognitive disorder puts in motion a long and challenging journey for patients and their families. MemoryCare is there every step of the way, from assessment and treatment to support and education for families and caregivers.

We are a non-profit charitable organization located in Asheville, North Carolina, on the campus of Givens Estate United Methodist Retirement Community.  The Givens Estates generously provides MemoryCare an affordable home in their historic Manor House, summer home of the Givens’ family.

We have two satellite clinics- one in Burnsville, NC (northeast of Asheville) and one in Waynesville, NC (west of Asheville), where we serve rural patients living in surrounding counties.
