Clinical Care

 

The Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center promotes care, support, and wellness for individuals and families affected by memory loss by partnering with the Cognitive Disorders Program at the University of Michigan Geriatrics Center.

Many people experience changes in their memory as they get older.  Some changes are normal.  Other changes may be a sign of a memory loss condition. If you are concerned about changes in memory, personality or thinking, it is important to schedule an evaluation with a specialist such as a neurologist or geriatrician. An evaluation can help you:

  • Understand the cause of your memory or thinking changes
  • Learn more about treatment options
  • Discover ways to maximize skills and promote quality of life
  • Plan for the future

The Cognitive Disorders Program brings together experts in neurology, nursing, and social work to provide high quality care.  The Cognitive Disorders Program’s multidisciplinary team includes:

  • Judy Heidebrink, MD – Director
  • Henry Paulson, MD, PhD – Co-Director
  • Roger Albin, MD
  • Sami Barmada, MD, PhD
  • Benjamin Bly, MD, PhD
  • Navid Seraji-Bozorgzad, MD
  • Toni Jackson, RN
  • Selina Mathis, MSW
  • Marie Milliken, LLMSW
  • Kristina Tomasik, NP
