We are here to support our community, patients and their families with the diagnosis and management of Alzheimer’s Disease, and related dementias.

The Center of Excellence

for Alzheimer's Disease

Glens Falls Hospital has been designated as a Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease by the New York State Department of Health. It is one of ten in the entire state. At Glens Falls Hospital’s Center of Excellence, we take an interdisciplinary approach to Alzheimer’s Disease, and related dementias. Our team is comprised of specialists who, in collaboration with our patients’ primary care physicians, not only make assessments and diagnoses, but formulate care plans suited for our patients and their families. Together we are here to assist those who have experienced the impact cognitive decline can have on lives, and to ensure that they are directed to necessary support resources.

We also strive to educate our community physicians on current diagnostic processes, and how to formulate comprehensive care plans. The Glens Falls Hospital Center of Excellence provides a spectrum of services from initial consult with Neurology to granular assessments for memory, cognition and language, to geriatric psychiatric consults to assess behaviors, and make recommendations on medication management. Overall, assessments are performed as necessary, and corresponding care plans are developed providing framework for patients and families on how to manage.
