The Memory Clinic at the University of Minnesota Medical Center/Fairview provides a comprehensive evaluation of memory and related cognitive function. Our multi-disciplinary team sets us apart from other clinics.
Our clinical assessments include a medical history, an exam, diagnostic testing, and evaluation of the patient's activities of daily living. Common memory problems we treat include Alzheimer's disease, Frontotemporal degeneration, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, and Vascular Dementia.
Our team works to ensure patients receive a thorough and dignified diagnosis. For each patient and care partner, we develop an individualized recommendation for care and support. We ensure that each patient and care partner receives the information needed to make important decisions. We actively work to support patients and to manage their diagnosis, through education and identification of resources.
Identifying new treatments and improving outcomes for persons with memory problems are important to us at the University of Minnesota. All patients and care partners are offered the opportunity to participate in research. The course of care provided at the Memory Clinic is not linked to participating in ongoing research, and participation is confidential.
The Memory Clinic operates with a multi-disciplinary team. This means that we can go beyond a medical diagnosis, to assist caregivers and persons with memory problems to plan to meet the everyday challenges faced by those coping with memory loss.
We are incredibly proud to have received a high satisfaction rating in a recent Fairview patient survey!
In the 2010 Patient Satisfaction survey, 100% of memory patients "strongly agreed" that they would recommend us to their friends. The 2010 Patient Survey was performed by the Fairview and University of Minnesota Physicians.
