Memory Clinic

The Memory Clinic is an inter-professional approach to providing early diagnosis and treatment for problems associated with memory loss. A group of interdisciplinary health care professionals work alongside a family physician to provide comprehensive care for patients, and families, living with dementia and other conditions involving memory loss. For many of these conditions, early diagnosis and treatment can help to maintain independent living and quality of life for as long as is possible for each individual person.

Referrals

Referrals must be made through your family physician at Erie Shores Family Health Team. Patients and their families are encouraged to discuss any memory changes or concerns with the provider.

What Patients & Families can Expect from the Memory Clinic

In the Memory Clinic, you and your family members will meet with a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, and pharmacist for a comprehensive assessment. Our team is closely connected with other community groups such as the Alzheimer Society and other specialists to ensure that the appropriate diagnosis is made and supports provided to the patient and family.

This information can provide you and your family doctor with a better understanding of your condition and next steps you and your family can take in your care. Each appointment will take approximately 2 hours. Prior to your appointment, a Memory Clinic team member will contact you and your family to help you prepare for your visit and provide you with more information about what to expect the day you attend the clinic.
