Dementia and Memory Loss Diagnoses
Patients may need memory evaluation and treatment if they are experiencing memory loss and related complications from one of the following conditions:
Alzheimer’s disease: Typically one of the first signs of cognitive impairment related to the disease are memory problems. The memory loss and other cognitive difficulties increase as the disease progresses. It is important to visit a trained physician as soon as the first symptoms present themselves, as the Burke expert team is trained to assess and treat patients with these disorders.
Dementia: When symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills interfere with a patient's ability to perform everyday activities, this is classified as dementia. Visiting an expert physician at Burke will allow a patient to be evaluated for the cause of the condition. Once diagnosed, the patient will be appropriately treated to minimize the interference of these symptoms and get them back to their daily life.
