The Memory Disorders Clinic at the University of Miami Health System provides compassionate care for individuals facing a wide variety of challenges and conditions related to memory. Our center draws on the knowledge and experience of a multidisciplinary team of professionals at one of the country’s leading academic medical centers. Our team includes experienced doctors and researchers in neurology, psychiatry, and related specialties.
Because memory problems can have many causes, we take a holistic approach to assessing, diagnosing, treating, and managing each individual. We know that every patient is different, and treating memory loss due to stroke, for example, requires a different strategy than preserving memory in a person with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Our doctors are actively involved in leading-edge clinical trials that may offer new options to our patient.
Our team specializes in state-of-the-art evidence-based assessment and management of cognitive impairment in the elderly.
Additionally, we provide services for caregivers, including:
- Individual counseling
- Support groups
- Caregiver education
- Community referrals
