Memory Care Evaluation and Planning

WellSpan Geriatrics offers comprehensive evaluations for patients 65 years or older with memory related concerns. Our team of caring, board-certified geriatricians along with our licensed clinical social worker will complete an extensive evaluation and diagnosis.

We encourage a loved one to attend appointments, so information and education can be shared correctly. After the evaluation, our geriatricians will discuss treatment options depending on the forms of dementia and/or cognitive impairment diagnosed. A care plan will be put in place and allow for each patient to live their fullest life.

We do not offer primary care services to the general geriatric population. Our geriatric specialists’ practice is specific to cognitive impairment assessment and treatment.


Conditions Treated


How We Can Help

The geriatric team at WellSpan can help evaluate and treat patients 65 years or older for dementia or cognitive impairment related to dementia. This evaluation of the patient consists of two appointments.

1. Assessment

  • With a Social Worker
  • Lasts one hour
  • Cognitive testing
  • Gathers additional information for physician related to dementia
  • Community resources and referrals can be provided, if needed

2. Exam

  • With a geriatrician
  • Lasts one and a half hours
  • Scheduled about 2-3 weeks after the assessment
  • Medical testing such as vision, hearing and blood pressure screening

After an evaluation, patients will be referred to agencies for additional community support.

Additionally, our geriatric team provides support as attending physicians and advanced practice clinicians to residents at some skilled nursing and assisted living facilities in York County.
