How to Refer

As our population ages, there’s an increasing need to build capacity for and increase access to high-quality, proactive memory care. You can help make that happen.


MINT Memory Clinics

We are improving the current model of dementia care by integrating specialist care, primary care and community agencies – all in a single location that’s close to home.
