MEMORY LOSS can be challenging for the individual and their family and friends. Memory loss can result in a lifelong change which can affect a person’s cognition, lifestyle, language, driving, feeding and many other aspects of daily living.

We are dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain your highest level of function. The UPHS Memory Center has professionals to help determine areas of strength and weakness to help you maintain and achieve your goals and maintain safety in your environment.

Your evaluation will involve comprehensive diagnostic testing. Upon completion of the assessment, our goal is to provide concrete data regarding your current status. We will make recommendations to help you function to your fullest. In some cases, we may recommend skilled outpatient therapy. Our caring professionals are here to help guide you through this experience. We look forward to meeting you.
