Patients at the Montefiore-Einstein Center for the Aging Brain (CAB) and Burke Rehabilitation Hospital’s Memory Evaluation and Treatment Service (METS) receive a comprehensive workup that incorporates evaluations by an interdisciplinary team of neurologists, geriatricians, psychiatrists, physiatrists, neuropsychologists and social workers.
Because caregivers are a vital part of a patient’s care team, their needs and concerns are assessed as well.
At the end of the initial screening and diagnosis appointment, which is a team based approach, patients and their caregivers are given a personalized plan of care and referrals to appropriate community-based support services. The plan of care is also shared with the patient’s primary care physician or referring specialist. If the patient does not have a regular doctor, the CAB or METS staff will help to identify one. There will also be periodic follow-ups to determine if adjustments should be made to the plan of care.
