About Charlotte Memory Center
Caring For Those Who Cared For Us
The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that North & South Carolina are home to 250,000 individuals with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. According to the 2010 U.S. Census report, 8.5% of the Greater Charlotte Region’s population is over the age of 65. The number of individuals in this area who have cognitive impairment affecting their daily lives is conservatively estimated to be close to 40,000.
Memory Center Charlotte was established to address this growing need in our community. The clinic focuses exclusively on memory care, allowing our staff to address the medical, safety, and behavioral issues inherent in patients with these diseases. Our patients and their families are in constant transition as the progression of the disease forces more disability on the patient, and increases care responsibilities on the caregiver. Approaches, strategies, treatments and expectations are constantly changing, and need to be modified frequently.
By focusing resources, training and experience at Memory Center Charlotte, the unique needs of the patient and family can be met. Our model is vital in keeping patients in their homes significantly longer, reducing ER visits, and giving caregivers the confidence they need in caring for their loved ones.
