The New York Memory Foundation, a 501C3 not-for profit organization, has been in existence since 2008. It was formed with the primary focus of evaluating and treating a wide variety of memory disorders, including those related to:

Head injury
Menopause
Alzheimer’s disease

 

The Foundation is the research arm of the New York Memory and Healthy Aging Services, where hundreds of patients with memory disorders have received care since 1999.

 

Dr. Gayatri Devi, who leads both the Foundation and the Memory Service, believes strongly in supporting both the caregiver and the patient through the illness, allowing all concerned to function at their best level.

 

Since 1994, Dr. Devi has focused her research on the following areas and published on the same.
