Memory Clinics provide early diagnosis, treatment and education for people living with dementia and other memory disorders. For many of these conditions, early diagnosis and treatment can help to maintain independent living and quality of life for as long as possible.
Patients and their families are supported by an interprofessional team of nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, pharmacists and others that are specially trained in caring for people living with dementia and other memory difficulties. The team works closely with patient’s Primary Care Provider (Family Physician or Nurse Practitioner), and with community groups like the Alzheimer’s Society, and specialist physicians to ensure care needs are met.
The Windsor Family Health Team and Windsor Team Care Centre has been trained by and is part of the national MINT Memory Clinic primary care collaboration. Click here to learn more about MINT Memory Clinics.
