MEMORY LOSS

 

For many seniors the memory clock inevitably ticks down to zero while husbands, wives, daughters, and sons do what they can to maintain their loved ones in familiar surroundings.  This approach can in many cases temporarily ward off the progressive nature of the many causes of Dementia, including Alzheimer's disease (AD) the most dominant.  AD accounts for 60-80% of dementia cases, and is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

Presently, treatments available for AD have a temporary effect, at best, in approximately one in four individuals, with effects lasting from 6 to 12 months before the benefits fade.



FREE MEMORY SCREENING

Not all cases of Memory Loss are dementia - or AD related, and it is important to know the difference in order to monitor for changes over time.

What can begin as memory loss can lead to mild cognitive impairment which may progress to a diagnosis of dementia.

At ACI, we offer screening with our specialists, at no cost to you and without obligation, expectation, or commitment to participate in clinical research.

Our specialists have extensive experience in dementia, AD, and Neurology research and can identify the difference between what is considered natural age-related memory loss or a disease process.  The information can be shared with your primary care practitioner or we can provide a referral to a specialist.
