Aging With Dignity

We hope to help people with cognitive impairments to understand cognitive disorders like Alzheimer's dementia (AD) and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and their effect on the lives of patients and families. The biggest risk factor for AD is advancing age. By the time an American reaches 85 the risk of developing AD is almost 50/50. That means that of the typical married couple in their mid-80s, the odds are that one or the other will have the disease.

Treatments and interventions including drug and non-drug treatments, financial issues, assisted living, etc. are addressed here. This website also introduces you to our clinical services at The Memory Center.

The Memory & Attention Center
This site is maintained by staff at the Memory & Attention Center which is based at 119 Cedar Street in Hyannis, MA and at 258 Main Street in Buzzard's Bay, MA. We see patients on Cape Cod, the islands, southeastern Massachusetts and from all over the United States who come to visit us on the Cape.

The Memory & Attention Center provides evaluation of memory and behavioral disorders for seniors with cognitive problems, involving dementia and psychiatric issues. We have been doing this for 30+ years. We work closely with seven geropsychiatric hospitals in southeastern Massachusetts that provide additional diagnostic and inpatient level care when needed. In fact, Dr. Elovitz who started The Memory & Attention Center, has been on staff at five of these hospitals, averaging ten years of service at each facility.

We believe much of the content of this website is relevant to seniors and their families everywhere in the US. We update the site regularly and it is always growing. Of course, visit the
Alzheimer's Association website and the Alzheimer's Foundation of America for information at the national level.

In southeastern Massachusetts, we have Hope Dementia & Alzheimer's Services of Cape Cod & the Islands at the local level. Also, family support groups are a specialty, across the Cape and Islands, at the Alzheimer's Family Support Center of Cape Cod.

A common question is where to find information about clinical trials: this -> website can match you to available, nearby options.
