Memory & Behavior Clinic
Memory complaints are a common problem. Although more prevalent in older adults, memory complaints can affect people of all ages. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential for effective management. Delnor's new Memory and Behavior Clinic is a specialized service for people who are experiencing memory loss and related functional changes.
Delnor's Approach to Memory Care
Delnor's unique approach to memory care is a collaborative effort between Delnor Psychological Services and Suburban Neurology Group, LLC. It allows the patient with memory-related symptoms and behaviors to receive a comprehensive evaluation by a multidisciplinary team of specialists in one convenient location. Test results are available in a timely manner, enabling the team to develop an individualized plan of high quality care for the patient.
On clinic days, patients and their families or caregivers will be scheduled for appointments with a team of specialists that include a board-certified neurologist, a clinical neuropsychologist, and a nurse practitioner. The need for additional testing (i.e. blood work, CT scan, MRI, neuropsychological testing) is determined at that time and scheduled accordingly. When all testing is complete, the patient and family meet with the team to discuss findings, recommendations and treatment options.
