Service Description

RaDAR (Rural Dementia Action Research) memory clinics are currently provided by primary health care teams in the Saskatchewan communities of Bengough, Carlyle, Esterhazy, Kipling, Lampman, Maryfield, and Weyburn. RaDAR is interested in exploring opportunities for expanding the rural memory clinics to other communities.

  • Memory clinics  address the need for specialized dementia care in rural communities without travel to a major city.

What happens at a memory clinic appointment:

  • The appointment requires approximately 3 hours.
  • Patient and family meet with their memory clinic team to discuss the plan for the appointment.
  • Patient and family meets separately with individual team members, with the patient undergoing an assessment with each professional.
  • At the end of appointment, the team reviews the assessment findings with patient and family, makes recommendations for management, and plans for follow-up.

Eligibility

People with symptoms of memory loss or worried about changes in their memory, thinking, or behaviour.
