The Norton Neuroscience Institute Memory Center offers holistic care for patients with memory loss and other memory issues, including Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. This means that in addition to clinical neurological care, we support caregivers and families to help provide the best quality of life possible for memory patients.
Research has shown that support groups and classes designed to help memory patients’ well-being can be an important addition to treatment that aims to slow disease progression. A caregiver support group can benefit those whose family members struggle with memory issues. Through Norton Neuroscience Institute Resource Centers, the Memory Center provides patients and their families with support groups, educational opportunities and additional resources at no additional cost.
