Overview

The Memory Clinic at Washington Regional offers a compassionate and state-of-the-art approach to diagnosing and treating disorders of memory.  We understand that some changes with memory and thinking may be reversible, and should not necessarily be considered an inevitable part of aging. In addition, we are committed to assisting our patient’s family and caregivers through education and support, to ensure that they have the resources they require.

Our Team

Our multi-disciplinary team includes members from geriatric medicine, geriatric neuropsychology, neurology, social work, and nursing. All members of our team have specialized training in geriatrics and disorders of memory.
