What is the Memory Care Center?

The Memory Care Center is part of Hartford Healthcare’s Ayer Neuroscience Institute. Our team of specialists includes medical professionals from neurology, geriatric psychiatry, clinical social work, and neuropsychology.

The Memory Care Center provides consultations for people who have thinking and/or memory problems. At the Memory Care Center, we are dedicated to helping people understand and adapt to thinking changes. We diagnose neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.

A Safe and Soothing Environment

Upon arrival, you will notice that the Memory Care Center looks different than typical doctors’ offices. The clinic’s design offers a safe and soothing environment for our patients and their families. We are the only clinic in our suite, meaning that the check-in desk is calm, quiet, and without long lines. The lighting is warm and inviting, and the carpets are without busy patterns or sharp color contrasts. Walls have handrails for safety. Our scale and our washroom are both wheelchair compatible.

The offices are spacious and designed so that patients do not feel like they are in an institutional setting. Exterior windows permit daylight to enter, which can help maintain orientation within the day, but window treatments prevent glare and provide privacy.

Caring for Our Patients

The Memory Care Center supports the needs of patients and care partners by listening to what is going on, then identifying resources and other supports to help with the many and sometimes unexpected manifestations of cognitive and memory disorders. Sometimes knowing when to stop a medication is as helpful as knowing when to start one.

Sometimes what is most needed is support to help frustrated and perplexed care partners learn how they can themselves become a flexible and adaptable part of the care for their loved one. The Memory Care Center’s staff respects our patients and their care partners as individuals. We guard confidentiality and respect privacy.

We advocate for our patients’ interests. Our chief focus is on the needs of the patient and the care partner. These needs can be medical, educational, psychosocial, financial, personal care and other.
