Sarasota Memorial's Memory Clinic



Memory Disorder Clinic Sarasota Geriatrics LifeLine
HealthLine

The Memory Clinic


now located at Sarasota Memorial's Institute for Advanced Medicine

Do you have ...
Difficulty remembering new things?

Problems handling complicated tasks, like balancing the checkbook or paying bills?

Trouble solving everyday problems at work or at home?

Trouble finding words?

Some memory loss is normal as we age. But, if memory loss is affecting your ability or the ability of someone you love to live a fulfilling, joyful life, we can help.

The Memory Clinic, partially funded by the Department of Elder Affairs, provides assessment and evaluation for persons with memory loss. A multi-disciplinary team, including neurologists, geriatrician and neuropsychologist, work together to offer the most accurate diagnosis possible. Our staff is specially trained to provide education to caregivers and to help families find the resources necessary to live with the symptoms of memory trouble.

FIRST, A DETAILED DIAGNOSIS
The initial examination is designed to be simple or complex, as the person’s problem requires. Only those tests and referrals necessary for an accurate diagnosis are ordered. The geriatrician, neurologist, neuropsychologist, nurse practitioners and social workers come together as a team to review clinical information and recommend appropriate treatment.

A COMPREHENSIVE REPORT
Once the evaluation process is complete, a written report is provided to the patient, primary care doctor and caregivers. A clinic physician and staff will meet with each patient and family to review and explain all results. Time is taken to teach about the diagnosis and make specific recommendations about organizing care.

COVERAGE FOR SERVICES
Medicare and other insurance typically cover much of the costs of the medical evaluation and the tests. We accept Medicare and Medicaid assignments. It is always a good idea to verify coverage with your insurance provider in advance.

THERE ARE ANSWERS
Approximately 15 percent of significant memory loss have reversible or treatable causes. For others, new treatments are available to preserve function and allow individuals to continue to enjoy a high quality of life. Learning more about managing symptoms can also help. A multidisciplinary team works together to provide state of the art evaluation, education and compassionate support.

The Sarasota Memorial Memory Clinic also offers free community education, memory screenings and a support group for families affected by early signs of memory trouble. (See the Community Health Calendar for dates and locations.)

Sponsored by Sarasota Memorial Hospital and State of Florida Department of Elder Affairs. Serving Sarasota, Desoto and Highlands Counties.
