At the SVA Healthy Aging and Dementia Clinic we provide psychological and neuropsychological assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions associated with aging.
For example, we perform dementia screening to allow us to discriminate between the effects of the normal aging process and conditions that could indicate disease. Screening can bring great peace of mind for individuals and families considering assisted-living housing or long-term care. Even those suffering from dementia can safely remain in their own homes with treatment and supports we can provide. There’s nothing better than the comfort of home.
