In 1998, WAI established a Network for memory clinics that follow WAI’s best practice guidelines. Network clinics use a team of dementia care experts to do high-quality, thorough, interdisciplinary evaluations. The specially trained professionals recognize the importance of the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In addition, they know the treatments and services that can help an individual and their family. Some clinics also have staff who have experience working with individuals living with an intellectual developmental disability.
For more information about the clinic network or how to develop your own clinic, please contact Dementia Diagnostic Clinic Network Manager, Jody Krainer: Phone (608) 263-6449 or email.
