Unique to the region, Guthrie’s Memory Clinic provides diagnosis and treatment for individuals who are experiencing cognitive problems and symptoms of dementia.
The most common form of dementia for people over age 65 is Alzheimer's disease. To positively diagnose dementia or Alzheimer's, Guthrie Memory Clinic staff performs detailed examinations of various brain faculties, such as attention, memory, language, visual spatial ability and executive function of the brain. Individuals diagnosed in the initial stages of dementia have more than a 50% chance of slowing the progression of the disease. A three-pronged therapeutic approach involving medication, supportive health care and social support are tailored to the needs of each patient with regular monitoring of his or her progress.
