Our specially trained team of physicians and caregivers can diagnose and treat memory conditions from short-term memory loss to Alzheimer’s disease.

About Memory Care and Neuropsychology

Most everyone can be forgetful or have an occasional memory lapse. But memory problems affecting your daily tasks, job skills or personality can mean a more serious health issue such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. If you or a loved one is showing signs of memory loss, you’ll find support and comprehensive care at Ascension.

Our neurologists and neuropsychologists are experts in a wide range of memory conditions. Because memory loss has many possible causes — including simple dietary issues, reactions to medication or neurological conditions — our detailed evaluations use the most advanced diagnostic tools and procedures.

Once a diagnosis is made, the Ascension team develops a personalized treatment plan designed for better daily function and quality of life, including strategies to improve current symptoms and help prevent further memory loss. Our doctors, registered nurses and clinical social workers also provide education and support for family members and caregivers.
