In addition to disease-modifying drugs, there are treatments that address memory loss without tackling its underlying cause.
Some examples of symptoms that may be treated with medication:
Norton Healthcare provides rehabilitation, occupational therapy and speech-language pathology services for patients managing memory loss. Our facilities offer some of the most advanced technology and specialized services in one location to help with gait, balance, strength, flexibility, speech, fine motor skills, swallowing, driving, cognition, vision and more.
As part of our commitment to personalized care, a social worker can help guide patients through their care journey and help connect them with resources and answer questions.
There is a difference between forgetfulness and memory loss. For example, it is normal to forget where you put your keys, but it could be a red flag if you forget what keys belong to which locks.
Because progressive memory loss is a degenerative disease, the memory will worsen over time. The sooner the diagnosis, the sooner that appropriate care can uncover the reason for the memory loss and offer the chance to treat mild cognitive impairment in the early stages.
Norton Neuroscience Institute is at the forefront of neuroscientific research. Por ser investigadores de numerosos ensayos, nuestros médicos especialistas tienen una experiencia sin igual con muchos tratamientos innovadores una vez que cuentan con aprobación para uso generalizado.

Coming to terms with memory loss and the possible onset of a more serious condition can be difficult. Getting a prompt diagnosis from a doctor is key in determining if further testing is required.
When ongoing memory loss requires medical attention, your doctor may ask a simple set of questions to assess the severity of the impairment. The questions might touch on the onset of the symptoms, the type of tasks that seem difficult, whether you’ve started any new drug or if a recent head injury or other trauma may have happened.
Further blood and brain-imaging testing also may be required in order to give an accurate diagnosis, develop a care plan and provide support.
