Typical referrals include clients with frequent complaints of forgetfulness such as forgetting names, forgetting appointments, losing things, new onset language problems, impaired thinking, impaired attention/concentration or a recent change in personality or behavior.
 
Using diagnostic and treatment advances, clients are provided with a thorough assessment, diagnosis, and comprehensive treatment, as well as counseling, education and guidance for family caregivers.
 
Our team offers highly specialized services in areas of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), Alzheimer's disease (AD), Lewy body dementia (LBD), Frontotemporal dementia (FTD), and related disorders. All these services are covered by OHIP.
 
At CAMH, Memory Clinic patient care is integrated with research in the Geriatric Psychiatry Division that focuses on novel assessments, treatments and preventative interventions under the framework of integrated care pathways (ICP).
