  • Making Plans

    After the evaluation, a plan to manage the memory problem is developed. This plan, which is outlined during a follow-up visit to the office, often includes:

    • Counseling about the diagnosis and prognosis
    • Information on support services
    • Medications for symptoms like memory loss, sleep disturbance, anxiety or depression

    The patient's management plan is recommended to his or her primary physician in a complete consultation letter. In some cases, the plan may be instituted by the neurologist at the center.

    Patients and their families are encouraged to return for follow-up visits every three to six months to monitor progress.

    In addition, the center's ongoing research program assures patients that they will be kept aware of the latest advances in treatment.
