Dementia cannot be cured, but it can be treated, particularly in its early stages, so a prompt diagnosis is important in order to limit the progression of the disease. Your visit is almost certain to be your regular physician who may refer you and your loved ones to a memory clinic.
At a Memory Clinic, your loved one will be given a baseline assessment to establish their current memory problems. They will be offered a series of tests to check their ability to remember facts and retain information, which will give an insight into their mental capabilities.
Nightingales Medical Trust runs Memory Clinics at multiple locations. Psychiatrists and Psychologists at these locations are trained and equipped to assess your loved one.
