The Memory Clinic at the Krembil Neuroscience Centre is made up of a group of health care specialists dedicated to helping patients overcome and deal with memory disorders. We provide access to neurologists, geriatric psychiatrists, a geriatrician, a nurse, an occupational therapist and a social worker.
A memory disorder is a problem storing and retrieving memories. It can be mild or severe and is often the result of a disease or injury that affects the brain. Dementia is the most common condition caused by memory disorders. In Canada, we'll likely see a drastic increase over the next 30 years of people suffering with dementia as our population gets older.
