The Memory Clinic is a multidisciplinary approach for early diagnosis, treatment and support of changes associated with memory loss. The Memory Clinic team members work with an individual’s family physician to provide comprehensive care for conditions involving memory loss. For many of these conditions, early diagnosis and treatment can help to maintain and support cognitive health and quality of life.

The Memory Clinic is operated by the Centre for Family Medicine and was developed by Dr. Linda Lee, RIA’s Schlegel Chair in Primary Care for Elders. Dr. Lee has been involved in training over 110 other family health teams to operate Memory Clinics across the province of Ontario.
