Memory Clinic

Program Type: Mental Health & Well-being
Description:


When a patient or a family member starts to recognize memory changes in themselves or their loved one, the individual will have an opportunity to receive a comprehensive assessment by an interdisciplinary team of professionals that are part of the STAR Family Health Team Memory Clinic. The team is comprised of a physician, a registered nurse, a social worker, and very supportive members of community agencies which include CCAC and the Alzheimer Society of Perth County.


After receiving a referral to the clinic by the family physician, the patient can expect assessments on many aspects of memory function including driving safety. The patient and family will receive recommendations on treatment options and plans for care. Our goal is to help patients with memory difficulties maintain independent living and best quality of life for as long as possible.


The Memory Clinic is offered monthly rotating between the three sites of the STAR Family Health Team.

Requires Physician Referral: Yes
