Montefiore Hudson Valley Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease
The Montefiore Hudson Valley Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease (CEAD) combines the years of expertise and best-in-class practices of the Montefiore-Einstein Center for the Aging Brain (CAB); Burke Rehabilitation Hospital’s Memory Evaluation and Treatment Service (METS); an expanding network of hospitals and physician groups in the Hudson Valley; and the research and training capabilities of Montefiore’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
The CAB and the METS are staffed by multi-disciplinary teams of specialists, including board certified neurologists, neuropsychologists, social workers and program coordinators. They are widely recognized as valuable diagnostic and resource centers that offer the most advanced care and services, including treatment, support, counseling, education and assistance with community-based services for individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias and their families.
The CEAD is one of ten Alzheimer’s Disease Centers of Excellence supported in part by a grant from the New York State Department of Health in an ambitious program to expand knowledge about Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias and improve access to screening, diagnosis and clinical trial opportunities for patients; community-based support services for them and their caregivers; and training programs for providers in all clinical disciplines.
The CEAD will serve patients from any part of the State or country, but it has a special commitment to the seven counties of the Hudson Valley region: Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess, Sullivan, Orange and Ulster.
