Alzheimer's Disease Specialists and Care Centers

Northwestern Medicine offers access to a variety of traditional and leading-edge technologies for diagnosing and treating Alzheimer's disease. Northwestern Medicine Alzheimer's specialists treat the whole patient and offer support services for both patients and their families.

Neurobehavior and Memory Clinic at Northwestern Memorial Hospital

Through the Northwestern Medicine Neurobehavior and Memory Clinic at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, we treat the whole patient and offer support services for both patients and their families. Our treatment plans include:

  • Quality, compassionate healthcare
  • Educational services
  • Counseling
  • Research facilities used to promote understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and hopefully, finding a cure

The Neurobehavior and Memory Clinic is geared toward supporting both patients and their families. When possible, our goal is to manage the disease in order to delay the onset of more debilitating symptoms and to allow patients to live independently longer.

Our clinic is staffed by neurologists, neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and speech therapists1 who use sophisticated cognitive testing and the latest developments in biomarkers. In addition, nationally sponsored clinical trials are available for suitable patients, and eligible patients may benefit from cognitive training and innovative life enrichment programs.

How we can help

Through the Neurobehavior and Memory Clinic, we treat the whole patient and offer support services for both patients and their families.  Our treatment plan includes:

  • Assessment and follow-up care by behavioral neurologists dedicated to treating those with dementia
  • Disease education, counseling, and referrals to community support services
  • Research opportunities to participate in cutting edge research on Alzheimer's dementia, frontotemporal dementia and primary progressive aphasia

The board-certified neurologists at Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disorders, including diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. They diagnose and treat patients with a full range of neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer’s disease affects an estimated five million Americans: 10 percent of people over age 65 and nearly 50 percent of those over age 85. Researchers are working diligently to uncover the cause and develop a cure. Until they succeed, the multidisciplinary team at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital and Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital can help you and your family deal with the physical and behavioral changes of Alzheimer’s with experience, compassion and the latest treatment protocols.
