A comprehensive approach to brain health and memory care for the whole family

If you or someone you care about is beginning to experience symptoms of memory loss, or possible signs of dementia, 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, in person and virtually, for people living with cognitive symptoms or disorders at any stage — and for their families and caregivers.

We know caring for a person showing signs of dementia, due to Alzheimer’s disease or another cause, 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. 

These services include: 

  • Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology
    Beyond dementia testing and diagnosis, our neurologist helps patients and families get a better picture through consultations to:
    • Assess cognitive function
    • Identify early signs of dementia
    • Address behavioral changes
    • Diagnose and treat medical conditions and co-morbidities 
    • Recommend personalized, effective interventions and lifestyles
       
  • Cognitive Health and Dementia Care Management
    Our care manager will help you develop a plan by identifying unmet needs and developing a personalized, structured care plan to address the medical, behavioral, and social elements of daily life.
     
  • Family and Caregiver Support
    Our programs include individual and family counseling as well as caregiver support groups – all of which are conveniently available virtually through online telehealth.
     
  • Resource Guidance
    Our resource specialist can help you identify local programs and services to promote wellbeing – whether you are coping with cognitive concerns or caring for someone who is.

These outpatient services may be used individually, or in combination. Services are covered by Medicare and most insurances, and most are available virtually.
