Since 1985, the RADC has provided services to more than 15,000 Alzheimer’s patients and their families through the Rush Memory Clinic.
The Rush Memory Clinic offers a thorough neurological and psychological evaluation for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The comprehensive evaluation lasts approximately two hours and consists of a standardized battery of cognitive tests as well as a consultation with a physician who specializes in the diagnosis Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive disorders.
Our clinical team consists of geriatricians, neurologists, neuropsychologists and advanced practice nurses are specialists. They do not offer primary care, but they do encourage close communication with your primary care provider. Family members often take the initiative to arrange for an evaluation. Referrals are not needed from your primary care provider, although prior approval is required if you are enrolled in an HMO (health maintenance organization) or other insurance plan.
The RADC staff member works closely with families to guide them in their decisions about the care of a loved one with dementia, including decisions about care in the home and other living arrangements.
