About Our Neurocognitive Clinic
Dementia is characterized by progressive intellectual deterioration that interferes with daily social or occupational functions. Many cognitive functions are impaired in dementia, including memory, abstraction, ability to learn, visuospatial perception, language function and higher executive functions; such as planning, organizing and sequencing activities.

Our integrated approach to care is ideal for patients experiencing difficulties with cognition or behavior as a result of neurologic disorders, such as Alzheimer disease or other types of dementia.
