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 monthly social club, books, web links, podcasts, and an advisory council. We hope you find them helpful.

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.
