The gradual pace of memory loss - and even cases of rapid memory loss - have long been accepted as relatively normal side effects of aging. But new research and treatment methods are proving that it doesn't always have to be that way. Remarkable advances in highly specialized diagnostic equipment and memory assessment techniques offer hope to aging Arkansans and those who care for them.That's precisely why the St. Vincent Memory Center was created - to offer hope to those who are concerned about their own or a loved one's memory. Because we firmly believe memory does matter.In one convenient location, the St. Vincent Memory Center provides a comprehensive evaluation and treatment option for people experiencing memory problems. We assess adults of all ages who are concerned that they are losing memory function. Our multidisciplinary team thoroughly evaluates each patient to determine the reasons for his or her memory loss and then develops a personalized plan of care aimed at achieving the best possible memory function. Changes in memory and thinking ability can occur at any age and there are many reasons and conditions that can cause these problems. People often associate memory loss with Alzheimer's Disease, but many memory disorders are caused by treatable conditions that surface as a part of our daily lives and natural aging process. In the case of Alzheimer's, new research is showing that early detection and treatment can slow the progression of the disease. Getting an early and accurate diagnosis and starting proper treatment can greatly enhance your quality of life. There is added peace of mind when you can determine the reason behind your memory loss.Please call us today for more information about our memory services and how we can help you and your loved ones..
