Memory: Improve Brain / Prevent Dementia Programs
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers – Memory and Alzheimer's Center is a collaborative partnership between the the fields of neurology, psychiatry and geriatric medicine offering comprehensive evaluation and innovative treatment to patients with a range of conditions that affect cognition and memory, including Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, traumatic brain injury, and cerebrovascular disease.
One out of every 10 individuals over the age of 65 has Alzheimer’s disease, but Alzheimer’s is not just a disease of old age. Five to ten percent of people with the disease have early onset, appearing when they are in their 40s and 50s.
The number of Americans with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias continues to grow each year. By 2025, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease is estimated to reach 7.1 million. By 2050, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease may nearly triple to a projected 13.8 million, barring the development of medical breakthroughs to prevent or cure the disease.
The team of providers at Empowered Learning Transformation Centers works together to provide the best care possible for patients with conditions affecting memory and cognition. The patient’s care is orchestrated throughout a variety of specialties to provide the treatment needed. Our physicians are teachers and researchers in their respective fields, teaching the next generation of physicians with the latest methodologies and expertise.
