Dementia Navigation Consultations for Families & Care Partners
Available Across the US
Your family's own personal
memory loss and dementia navigator
Our Dementia Navigation Consultations are designed specifically for family members or care partners of a loved one living with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), dementia, Alzheimer's, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia, Parkinson's Disease and general aging.
We have partnered with countless families who were told "see you back in 6 - 12 months" by their neurologist and left to navigate the day to day alone. The memory compass is here to decrease hours of research, reduce stress, and provide compassionate guidance and support individualized to your unique needs.
Working with your own Dementia Navigation consultant specializing in dementia & Alzheimer's care will provide the exact expert support you need!
Our clients have 1:1 access to their own dementia navigator! Your consultant is a care specialist, certified dementia practitioner, and has a background as a speech-language pathologist with a master's degree in communication sciences and disorders evaluating and treating individuals living with neurodegenerative diseases. We are here to guide you as you navigate through life changes, we will help you implement effective care practices, and address the quality of life for all involved.
Our Memory Loss Navigation services complements the care your loved one may be receiving from healthcare providers. At The Memory Compass, we take a holistic approach while also taking time getting to know you and your unique needs on your care partner journey. We excel in developing your own individualized DEMENTIA NAVIGATION ACTION PLAN! We are here for you whether your loved one has been recently diagnosed or is in the later stages of their disease progression.
We look forward to being your family's personal memory loss navigator!

Have Access to Your Own Dementia Consultant When You Need It
Our service offerings are not one size fits all. A major goal of The Memory Compass is to support families in order to avoid crisis, burnout, and reduce overwhelm. Several of the families we work with have had us part of their dementia care team for years. For continued support and individualized guidance continued sessions are offered on a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly, or as needed basis. We will work together to create an individualized on-going plan of support to fit your unique needs.
