The NeuroHealth Memory Disorders Center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of memory disorders and dementia. We have created a supportive environment for the most comprehensive medical care to achieve the best possible outcome for patients and families. We recognize that caring for someone with a memory disorder takes patience and a focus on things patients can still do and enjoy.

About Dementia

An estimated 2 million people in the U.S. suffer from severe dementia, and another 1 to 5 million people experience mild to moderate dementia. Among people over the age of 65, five to eight percent have some form of dementia, and the number doubles every 5 years.

Dementia is a neurological disorder that affects a person’s ability to think, speak, reason, remember, and move. Dementia may also manifest itself in behavioral and personality changes, depending on the areas of the brain affected.

Some types of dementia worsen with time and cannot be cured. Other types can be treated and reversed. The three most common forms of dementia are Alzheimer’s disease, multi-infarct dementia (MID) or vascular dementia, and Lewy body dementia.

"I already recommend NeuroHealth to others and consider you one of the best practices I have ever experienced in the medical field. The only way to improve is to clone yourselves to make yourselves available to more people. I love the approach of total medical care."

"I am very pleased – actually ecstatic – about my last month coming to NeuroHealth. I have never before received such help, and I now feel better. I will let anyone who asks know about NeuroHealth. If they suffer migraines, they will hear from me of your commitment to helping patients."

Donna M

"I'm always very comfortable and feel that all my questions have been answered. Today I brought up a new concern, hand and wrist pain, and was referred to Dr. L'Europa for a nerve test and to occupational therapy immediately. I am completely satisfied with the service today and always."
