Resource:Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience Alzheimers Disease and Dementia Center

Name: Resource:Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience Alzheimers Disease and Dementia Center
Description: If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with dementia caused by Alzheimer's disease, you'll be in good hands at Jefferson. Our neurologists and psychiatrists are dedicated to: Compassionate care for individuals with Alzheimer's disease; Supporting families; Advancing care through research into the epidemiology and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. We interact with patients very early in the disease progression, when impairment is typically mild; deliver state-of-the-art care; provide information; build care-giving skills; and help caregivers connect with community support and plan for the future.

Although there is no cure for Alzheimer's disease, our goal is to provide accurate diagnoses and state-of-the-art treatment. We are also involved in basic science research that is advancing fundamental knowledge of dementia-related disorders and paving the way for new methods of treatment.

At Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience, patients with Alzheimer's disease can participate in clinical trials with promising investigational treatments for the disease. Most of these studies are multicenter, multiyear trials that have already met a number of rigorous standards for safety and efficacy and have shown favorable effects on memory.

For many patients and their families, participation not only offers the hope of slowing the disease but also represents a chance to share personal experience and contribute to new scientific knowledge. Patients who agree to participate must be able to assent to the study, and caregivers who support that participation act as surrogate decision-makers and provide informed consent.
