For more than 35 years New York Memory Center has been a pioneer in the movement to bring evidence-based home and community solutions that positively impact both the lives of adults living with memory loss and their caregivers. We are breaking new ground and setting an enlightened standard of care and support.
We want the best care for individuals living with a memory disorder, and we are serious about it. There is life after diagnosis, and exclusive membership means full access to our active treatment that focuses on supporting the capacity a person retains, including psychological, social, cognitive, and physical domains of health and well-being. Our program is designed to sustain functional independence, reduce agitation, improve disease-related behavioral symptoms, reduce or eliminate depression, limit excess disability, and reduce caregiver burnout.
Whether you’re in your 50s and just diagnosed, in the middle to later stages and maintaining, or just somewhere in between, you are welcome at New York Memory Center.
