Neurobehavior and Memory Clinic
When a person has dementia, many areas of the brain shrink and lose function. When this happens, they experience a steady decline in cognitive skills including the capacity to think, remember, or reason, as well as in their characteristic personality. And, as brain function continues to decline, they will gradually lose the ability to live independently. A diagnosis of dementia can be frightening for those affected by the disease as well as their family members and caregivers.
Currently, there are no cures for common forms of dementia caused by a neurodegenerative process, including Alzheimer's Disease (AD), Lewy body dementia (LBD), and frontotemporal disorders like frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and primary progressive aphasia (PPA). However, a better understanding of these disorders and how they can be managed make it possible for affected individuals and their loved ones to meet daily challenges and enjoy a better quality of life.
Our program is geared toward supporting both the patient and their families through this process and, when possible, managing the disease to delay the onset of more debilitating symptoms, allowing patients to live independently longer.
