One of the things that sets the Memory Center apart is the support we provide to both patients and families in the form of individual care but also with a newsletter to keep you informed, an advisory council, podcasts, books and web links. We hope you find them useful.
The second edition of Practical Dementia Care, a widely read and well-respected manual written by Center faculty members, teaches physicians, nurses, psychologists, and therapists caring for Alzheimer’s patients details of the Johns Hopkins model or dementia care.
The 36-Hour Day: A Family Guide to Persons Caring for Persons with Alzheimer’s Disease, first published in 1981, is the groundwork for Center’s commitment to public education. Co-authored by Memory Center faculty member, Dr. Peter V. Rabins, the book was the first of its kind. Now in its fifth edition, the book remains a definitive resource for families.
