Memory Disorders Center

Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience Memory Disorders Center is the only facility in Hawaii with a dedicated multidisciplinary team of clinical neurologists, research neurologists, cognitive rehabilitation specialists and brain health and wellness specialists trained in diagnosing and treating memory disorders and dementia. The evaluation to diagnose memory disorders and dementia may include an MRI of the Brain, EEG, laboratory tests and neuropsychology testing. Each patient is unique and medical workups will vary depending on the patient’s medical history and clinical presentation. Once the evaluation for the patient is complete, the multidisciplinary team will discuss the findings with the patient and family. Together we formulate an individualized plan for treatment and management. Plans can include medications and lifestyle recommendations. Teaching includes nutritional counseling, physical exercise, and brain stimulation exercises that focus on improving brain health. Memory Disorders Center staff are dedicated to continued support those living with memory disorders. Care for the caregivers is a vital part of the Memory Disorders Center program and includes education, counseling, coordination of care and access to resources in the community. The Memory Disorders Center and Alzheimer’s Research Unit is a part of the global network of top neuroscience centers involved in Alzheimer’s research funded by NIH and other organizations.  Our Neuroscience Center of Excellence is recognized nationally for its work not only in providing most advanced cutting edge treatments, but also work with other centers in US and global to offer groundbreaking Clinical Research.
