At MemoryCare, it's about family

Memory impairment affects close to half of Americans over age 85.

Alzheimer’s disease, the most well-known condition in the family of cognitive disorders, is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease and Prevention. Regardless of the diagnosis, cognitive disorders are often the most common reasons we lose independence as we age.

These diseases profoundly affect not only the person living with memory impairment, but their caregivers who are frequently family members. Recognizing this, MemoryCare created an innovative, community-based model of care that extends beyond the expected -patient assessments, diagnosis and treatment- to clinical support that informs, prepares, comforts and guides families and their loved ones about what is often a long and uncertain journey.

“By engaging caregivers early in the dementia diagnostic process, MemoryCare is able to promote advanced care planning for families, guide and establish safe routines, prolong time at home and ease the stress that dementia can cause.”
