An accurate diagnosis is a critical first step in helping people who are experiencing memory changes. Using the most recent advancements in the treatment of neurocognitive disorders, the clinic team, led by our geriatric psychiatrist,nurse practitioner and licensed clinical social worker, assesses individuals on an outpatient basis. Our geriatric psychiatrist discusses the diagnosis and recommended treatment with families and caregivers so they can best assist their loved ones, whether they continue to reside at home or require a more secure and supportive environment. In addition to supporting individuals living in their own homes, the Samuel and Alexia Bratton Neurocognitive Clinic continues to be a resource for those living in other residential settings such as independent retirement and assisted living communities. The Neurocognitive Clinic is poised to help every person live to their full potential and support the caregiver every step of the way.
The short-stay evaluation program includes a minimum 21-day stay where participants enjoy an engaging, secure and supportive environment. The program was designed to help individuals with cognitive change who could benefit from diagnostic evaluations, or who may be struggling in their current environment. Using the most recent advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of neurocognitive disorders, an inter-disciplinary team led by our geriatric psychiatrist evaluates individuals over a three week period. This team discusses the diagnosis, recommended treatments, and the individual’s response to various therapeutic and social experiences with families and caregivers so they can best support their loved ones. In addition to supporting residents and the greater community, the Bayleigh Chase team often conducts evaluations for those who are currently living in an assisted living or other senior living community.
