A special place where all are welcome
Read about us on this website and watch us on TV or online. Watch the March 2013 feature about the Center made for Brooklyn Independent Television’s HealthBeat. Or, see this excellent student film, Don’t Ask Me What I Had for Breakfast or the segment from 2011 on CUNY’s Science&U.
For 28 years New York Memory Center has been a pioneer in the movement to bring evidence-based home and community solutions that positively impact both the lives of adults living with memory loss and their caregivers. We are breaking new ground and setting an enlightened standard of care and support.
We want the best care for individuals living with a memory disorder, and we are serious about it. There is life after diagnosis, and exclusive membership means full access to our active treatment that focuses on supporting the capacity a person retains, including psychological, social, cognitive, and physical domains of health and wellbeing. Our program is designed to slow the rate of disease progression, sustain functional independence, reduce agitation, improve disease-related behavioral symptoms, reduce or eliminate depression, limit excess disability, and reduce Caregiver burnout.
We not only offer Brooklyn’s only program tailored for those recently diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, but we also provide a multi-faceted program that coincides with the progression of the disease.
We are one of just a few programs in the state to consistently receive Alzheimer’s dedicated funding through the New York State Office for the Aging. We have been recognized with the following awards: America’s Best Long Term Care Provider, Gilbert Guide; Outstanding Service Provider Award, Long Island Alzheimer’s Association; Safe Program Award, NYC Central Insurance; Enhanced Project Award, NYC Department for the Aging; and the Inter-generational Program Award, New York State Office for the Aging.
Whether you’re in your 50’s and just diagnosed, in the middle to later stages and maintaining, or just somewhere in between, you are welcome at New York Memory Center.
We are grateful to the Brooklyn Community Foundation for support of our scholarship fund. See our Partnerships page for more information.
