An accurate diagnosis is a critical first step in helping people who are experiencing memory changes. Using the most recent advancements in the treatment of memory disorders, the clinic team, led by our geriatric and neuropsychiatrists and licensed clinical social worker, assesses individuals on an outpatient basis. Our psychiatrist discusses the diagnosis and recommended treatment with families and caregivers so they can best assist their loved ones, whether they continue to reside at home or require a more secure and supportive environment. In addition to supporting individuals living in their own homes, the Memory Clinic continues to be a resource for those living in other residential settings such as independent retirement and assisted living communities.
Conveniently located in two locations, Easton and Sykesville, MD, the Memory Clinics are poised to help every person live to their full potential and support the caregiver every step of the way. For more information, visit our Bayleigh’s Chase or Copper Ridge communities today.
