The staff of the UCSF Over 80 Clinic seek to address the complex dementia care issues commonly seen when caring for the oldest old. This care often requires an in-depth understanding of co-existing non-dementia medical illnesses, medication interactions, and the integrated living environment encountered in care of elders.

If you or someone you know is experiencing any of the signs and symptoms of neurodegenerative disease, including dementia, you may want to talk to a doctor about your concerns and observations. The more prepared you are for your appointment, the more you will be able to get out of it. These tips may help you get ready.

Thank you for considering a referral to the UCSF Memory and Aging Center. We appreciate the opportunity to provide consultation services to you and your patients. The clinical services at the Memory and Aging Center are focused on providing a diagnostic evaluation and treatment recommendations for neurodegenerative diseases. This includes diagnoses such as Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies as well as less common disorders such as frontotemporal dementia, Huntington’s disease and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. We also have a specialty clinic for patients with cognitive complaints that may be associated with movement disorders or genetic conditions.
