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
- 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.
