Provides clinical services to Saskatchewan residents with a focus on diagnosis and management of atypical and complex cases of suspected dementia, where an interdisciplinary team assessment is most needed.
- The clinic streamlines assessment and diagnosis in order to reduce repeated travel over long distances and to shorten the time to diagnosis by coordinating an interdisciplinary assessment on one day.
- Following assessment, patients and family members meet with the neurologist and neuropsychology team and are are provided with information about the probable diagnosis, feedback based on the clinical assessment and investigations, and recommendations for management and care. Where appropriate, referrals are made to local support groups or services. Team clinicians prepare individual written reports that are collated and sent to the referring physician.
Objectives of the clinic include:
- Increase the availability and accessibility of dementia care in rural and remote areas
- Determine the acceptability of the one-stop clinic and of telehealth versus regular follow-up
- Develop culturally appropriate assessment protocols for assessment of dementia in Indigenous older adults.
The Rural and Remote Memory Clinic receives funding from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health to provide clinical services to Saskatchewan residents.
Individuals who are concerned about their memory and individuals who or are worried about the memory of a family member or friend.
Referring yourself, a family member, or friend for an assessment:
If you are concerned about your memory, or are worried about the memory of a family member or friend, you can request a remotely-delivered memory assessment. The neuropsychologist and team work with you and will offer a memory assessment over the telephone to you or your family member or friend in their own home.
Based on the outcome of the assessment, RRMC will work with you and your healthcare provider to facilitate supports as needed.
Call 306-966-5925 or email email@example.com with information about the best way to contact you (but please don't include confidential health information in your message). RRMC will get in touch to answer any questions you may have and to complete the intake process.
