Memory Care Services

The Missouri Memory Center in the CMH Neurology and Headache Center features a multi-disciplinary team of experts. They diagnose and treat patients with memory problems related to dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and other neuropsychological issues.

Impaired memory has many different causes, including some that may improve with specific treatments. Sometimes memory loss can be part of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. The best time to get to the bottom of memory issues is when the symptoms are still mild.

The Missouri Memory Center offers the following services:

  • Neurological examination
  • Cognitive evaluations
  • Imaging and other neurodiagnostic studies
  • Neuropsychological testing
  • Medication review
  • Behavioral assessments
  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Home care assessment
  • Patient/Family/Caregiver education

Help for You or a Loved One

If you have concerns about yourself or a loved one, we can help with compassionate care and advanced treatment options. Patients come to receive help due to a wide range of memory concerns. They may have trouble understanding why they are not functioning as efficiently at work. They may also wonder if they have a more serious problem, such as dementia.

The Missouri Memory Center sees many different levels of memory concerns and many different age groups of patients.

Research Opportunities

CMH Neurology and Headache Center and Missouri Memory Center participate in research studies for neurology, Alzheimer's disease and headache care.

What are Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials involve testing new drugs in patients who have the disorder or disease being treated. These trials are conducted after extensive research and testing in labs and with healthy volunteers. CMH Neurology & Headache Center gives patients opportunities to participate in clinical trials that help to move new treatments forward. Participants get to try new treatments while offering hope for patients in the future.
