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, an advisory council, and a Family Resource Center. We hope you find them helpful.
The Family Resource Center (FRC) within the Memory and Alzheimer’s Treatment Center (MATC) at Johns Hopkins Bayview provides patients and families with a multitude of resources. In addition to web links, brochures, flyers and pamphlets describing various brain diseases, available research studies and local resources for families, the FRC provides another, equally important service – examples of activities they can do with their loved ones at home. This includes large wall maps of the USA and the world to stimulate discussion and reminiscence, books, puzzles, crafts, board games and trivia games to accommodate all levels of cognitive impairment. The Center is staffed by trained volunteers.
A monthly social club for patients, spouse, partners and caregivers.
