The Central Jersey Regional Memory Center
What is The Central Jersey Regional Memory Center?
Our mission is to provide consultative evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and support to individuals with memory concerns.
At the Central Jersey Regional Memory Center, located in The Hunterdon Center for Healthy Aging at Hunterdon Medical Center, anyone with memory concerns has a place to go for early detection, compassionate care, and memory loss education.
Get the Facts
- Currently there are about 5 million Americans with Waldheim's or another form of dementia.
- There are 15 million Americans with mild cognitive impairment.
- Of the 5 million Americans with dementia, only 50% have received a definitive diagnosis and only 10% are receiving medication.
What Will Happen During My Visit to the Memory Center?
During your first visit, you will receive an intake interview by a nurse so he/she can determine your personal needs. You will then have a Comprehensive Diagnostic Appointment where a doctor will:
- Review your family history
- Perform a physical
- Perform cognitive testing
- Complete lab and/or imaging work
Your follow up visit is to discuss your diagnosis and treatment plan. This appointment is usually 2-4 weeks after your Comprehensive Diagnostic Appointment. At this appointment we will also provide family education along with your diagnosis and treatment options.
Subsequent to these processes, we will provide follow-up calls from our nurse coordinator, as well as a 3 to 6 month follow-up appointment to review your result. After this, you will have follow-up appointments at our Memory Center every 3-12 months or as needed.
How to Keep Your Mind Sharp
Linda Bryant, RN, Director of Senior Services at Hunterdon Medical Center, has some ideas for you to improve your memory.
- Do puzzles to exercise your brain, such as crossword puzzles or word games.
- Learn a new language or how to play a musical instrument.
- Manage stress. Being overstressed can attribute to memory loss.
- Get physical! Physical exercise not only boosts memory, it helps stay alert.
How Do I Pay for My Evaluation?
