To promote ideal family and patient-centered care in dementia, the UCSF Memory and Aging Center has created a Family Advisory Council that provides family caregiver input regarding the delivery of clinical care services. Topics may include feedback regarding the existing services as well as ideas regarding new innovative programs under development or raising awareness regarding the priorities or unmet needs of families and patients at the MAC. The council is comprised of family caregivers who care, or have cared, for persons with dementia.

Gallery 190

The Memory and Aging Center has met individuals who never created art before becoming ill and are now making wonderful, intriguing artwork in the face of their illness. When the MAC moved to the UCSF Mission Bay Campus in 2012, we immediately imagined art hanging in the beautiful reception area of Suite 190.

Gallery 190, sponsored by the UCSF Memory and Aging Center (MAC), is located in the Sandler Neurosciences Building on the Mission Bay Campus of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

Hellman Visiting Artist Program

The unique Hellman Visiting Artist Program was created to foster dialogue between scientists, caregivers, patients, clinicians and the public regarding creativity and the brain.

The unique Hellman Visiting Artist Program was created to foster dialogue between scientists, caregivers, patients, clinicians and the public regarding creativity and the brain. Each year, an accomplished artist (visual artist, musician, writer or other creative individual) is invited to visit the Memory and Aging Center to learn about neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia. We encourage a creative exchange between the artist and the researchers, as well as interactions with patients and families who agree to participate.
