Is it Normal Aging or Something More
Distinguishing normal memory loss from cognitive disorders
As we age, many of us develop concerns about our memory, especially when it
comes to figuring out what are normal "senior moments" versus what may be
the beginning of a more serious memory disorder. In the Cognitive Neurology
and Memory Disorders Program at BIDMC, we apply the latest behavioral,
genetic and imaging tests to diagnose and treat a wide range of memory
problems. We can reassure those whose memory issues are solely related to
aging, and we can use the latest and most advanced treatments to help those
with more significant memory impairment.
Comprehensive Evaluation and Treatment
We employ effective behavioral, lifestyle and medication regimens to treat
a range of issues, from the mildest memory symptoms to severe disorders.
Our multidisciplinary team of cognitive neurologists, psychiatrists,
neuropsychologists and social workers collaborate to perform a
comprehensive evaluation and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored
to each patient's individual strengths and weaknesses.
