Resources and Support for Living with Memory Loss

The Deanna and Sidney Wolk Center for Memory Health offers people experiencing memory loss and their families and caregivers personalized support to minimize disability and maximize well-being.

Through individualized resource coordination with local services, counseling, support groups, and education, our goal is for you to feel heard and supported. The Wolk Center is here for you along the entire journey, from initial memory concerns to end of life.

Individual and Family Counseling

Our clinicians offer psychotherapy and counseling to patients and family members struggling with the experience of memory loss. Family members and caregivers can receive care even if the person with memory loss is not a Wolk Center patient. Virtual and in-person services are available. 

Wolk Center counselors help patients and/or family members deal with a wide range of challenges, including: 

  • Coping with a diagnosis
  • Dealing with anxiety and depression
  • Navigating family dynamics
  • Managing caregiver stress

Memory Support Groups and Caregiver Education

We offer in-person and virtual caregiver support groups, grief support groups, and caregiver support groups led by licensed clinicians. 

For individuals, families, and caregivers, we also offer seminars on subjects such as safety, finances, and legal issues; a six-week “boot camp” to train caregivers on meeting the constant challenges of providing compassionate and effective dementia care; and diverse educational resources.

Resource Coordination for Memory Loss

Resource coordination through the Wolk Center for Memory Health is a highly personalized service that goes beyond general guidance to help you build a plan that specifically addresses your preferences, needs, and circumstances, including your specific diagnosis. Through ongoing communication with our resource specialist, we can help you get what you need, when you need it, and make adjustments along the way.
