What is the Penn Memory Center?

The Penn Memory Center is a single, unified Penn Medicine source for those age 65 and older seeking evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, information, and research opportunities related to symptoms of progressive memory loss, and accompanying changes in thinking, communication and personality.

The Penn Memory Center is a National Institute on Aging-designated Alzheimer’s Disease Center (ADC).

We are one of only 30 such sites in the nation and the only site in our tri-state region. ADC designation is earned by leading universities and medical institutions offering state-of-the-science diagnosis, treatment and research. The focus of the Centers is on individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and other age-related progressive memory disorders.
