The Memory Clinic (CDCD) of Santa Lucia Foundation is focused on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of various forms of dementia. CDCD patients follow a multidimensional diagnostic process, exploring the medical history as well as cognitive and behavioral function. This approach allows an accurate diagnosis to be formed such that an appropriate treatment plan for the specific needs of the individual can be designed and implemented. The patient is closely followed over time with scheduled visits.
The Memory Clinic also serves an important preventive role and is therefore not exclusively for patients with current overt cognitive difficulties. It is recommended to contact the Memory Clinic as soon as memory, attention or concentration difficulties arise. An early diagnostic path makes it possible to detect any risk of development of dementia, thus allowing early intervention.
