Operating since 1996, our community based, OHIP-funded Memory Clinic is staffed by neurologists and family physicians with care of the elderly fellowship training and/or focused practice designations.
We have expanded our services to include movement disorders, migraine, epilepsy and general neurology. We offer Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction courses for caregivers. Non-OHIP services includes Communication Therapy provided by our consultant Speech Language Therapist and Driving assessment/rehabilitation.
We offer a variety of educational events for physicians and medical students wishing to increase their knowledge and practical skills. Some of these activities are described below. To inquire or sign up, contact us at (416) 386-9761.
We hold on-site half-day sessions, in which family physicians participate in case discussions and interactive problem solving on a variety of dementia related topics. Topics are selected to suit the interests and needs of each group.
Same format as for family physicians but geared to the needs and interests of internists, geriatricians, neurologists and psychiatrists.
We offer out-patient electives for residents in geriatrics, psychiatry, internal medicine, neurology and Family Medicine Care of the Elderly .
Medical students have the opportunity to advance their clinical skills in brain-behaviour relationships through participation in electives.
