Hebrew SeniorLife responds to COVID-19
As the incidence of COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to spread across the state, Hebrew SeniorLife's Center for Memory Health will now be serving patients via telehealth (visits via online video or phone call). As always, our number one priority is protecting our patients, residents, and staff. If you have any further questions about the change in our services, please call 617-363-8600.
When You Don’t Know Where to Turn, Turn to Us
If you or someone you care about is beginning to experience symptoms of memory loss, you likely have many questions. Our goal is to help you understand the options to maximize cognitive function and quality of life.
The Center for Memory Health at Hebrew SeniorLife provides outpatient memory care services for people living with cognitive symptoms or disorders at any stage — and support for their families and caregivers.
Our services include:
Our diagnostic evaluation may include:
- Medical history and physical examination
- Cognitive screening tests
- Detailed neurological exam
- Advanced diagnostic testing, as needed
- Referral to neuropsychological testing
In partnership with the patient’s primary care physician, our dementia care specialists works to develop and monitor an individualized, person-centered care plan that covers the medical, behavioral, and social aspects of daily life. We stay with you and your family as an ongoing source of support, offering additional resources and referrals as needed.
The UCLA model that this approach is based on has been proven to improve outcomes for patients and caregivers alike.
We know caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia can be overwhelming. We are here to help you cope with the stress of a loved one’s condition and provide the resources you need to make informed decisions.
Our family care program is tailored to suit your specific needs and might include individual or family counseling. Our clinicians provide individual and family counseling, as well as referrals, resources, and other support. You can enroll in the family care program regardless of whether the person with dementia is a patient with us. We offer teleconferencing capabilities to keep long-distance family members engaged.
You may use these outpatient services individually or in combination. Most health insurances are accepted.
