Because Your Brain Matters
Based on projections by the United Nations (UN), Asia’s elderly population ─ those who are aged 65 years and older ─ is going to increase four times its current number by 2050. With this rapid increase comes the expected rise of individuals who have a form of dementia as age is a major risk factor for the development of this disorder.
Dementia is a condition in which there is deterioration in memory, thinking, comprehension, judgment, behavior and the ability to perform everyday activities—a deterioration that is beyond what might be expected from normal aging. Personality changes can also result from this condition.
The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease. This contributes to around 60–70% of known cases of dementia. The earliest symptoms of this disease are memory lapses; in particular, having difficulty recalling recent events and learning new information. While most people develop this disease after the age of 65, there are cases of people developing this form of dementia earlier in life.
With extensive evaluation and laboratory testing, various forms of dementia can be detected and subsequently treated to ensure improvement in the quality of life of those affected by this condition.
At De Los Santos Med’s Memory Center, our team of specialists provide intimate and comprehensive consultations, evaluations and treatment recommendations to monitor and enrich your behavioral and mental wellness.
We objectively and methodically perform memory screening and memory assessment—open to all those who are concerned about their current mental well-being. We also offer structured counseling to both loved ones and caregivers in order to enhance their awareness about the proper care and supervision needed by those who are presently living with a form of dementia.
Since disorders like psychosis and depression can lead to dementia in elderly individuals, the Center also serves as a conducive facility that offers psychiatric assessment and evaluation.
Psychological clearance testing, a standard pre-employment requirement for most companies, is likewise available at the Memory Center.
The Memory Center is located at the 3rd Floor of the Medical Arts Building.
