Aspirus Memory Clinic

The Aspirus Memory Clinic targets its services to older adults in the north central Wisconsin area who are experiencing memory difficulties which may be the result of Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. An important aspect of our care is assessing the needs of the families and caregivers, and linking them with the community support services that will help them deal with the diagnosis, and with immediate and future needs. The clinic is staffed by a physician, a nurse practitioner, and a clinical social worker. We are also thankful to have the Greater Wisconsin Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association working with us as a close consultant to provide ongoing support and education for patients, families and caregivers, and the clinic staff.

 

The clinic provides a comprehensive assessment of the patient including a complete physical exam and health history, a psycho-social evaluation, and neurobehavioral testing to help determine the diagnosis and etiology of the patient's presenting problems. Patients, families, and caregivers will be linked with appropriate medical and support services in the community. The patient's primary care provider will be provided a complete assessment report with treatment recommendations.

This clinic is a member of the WAI-Affiliated Dementia Diagnostic Clinic Network. Network clinics differ from other memory clinics in that their staff have received training/observation time and/or guidance from the WAI and the UW Health Memory Assessment Clinic. In addition, clinic network staff attend the WAI's annual conference and bi-annual clinic network meetings, which provide up-to-date research and disease management information. Clinics in the network do remain autonomous, but follow a set of guidelines.
