Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who should be present for the Memory Loss Navigation consultations?
    Our Memory Loss Navigation Consultations are designed specifically for family members and care partners navigating the care of a loved one living with memory loss and cognitive decline. These consultations are aimed at providing support, education, and individualized guidance. These services complement the care you may already be receiving from support groups, elder law attorneys, or in-home companion care. The Memory Compass is here to be a special member of your "village" and care team. Our initial memory loss navigation consultations are held via phone or virtually across the US. The positive about modern technology is that multiple members can be in attendance across different states and time zones at once! We understand that family dynamics can be challenging for some. We take great care in the families that we work with by accommodating by having separate sessions between family members when needed. Are you interested in services specifically for your loved one?

Our sessions are provided via Zoom or phone consultations. Multiple family members living in different time zones can be included in the consultations at one time if requested.
  • My mom/dad, family member, or friend has cognitive challenges. Can I purchase Memory Loss Navigation Consultations or Cognitive Wellness Sessions for them?
    Yes, of course! We often work with adult children. In fact, a majority of our clients are adult children who are navigating the care of their parents either from near or a far. We have also worked with clients where a friend has gifted consultation services as a way to show their ongoing support.

    The Memory Compass provides in-person support services for Indiana residents depending on distance from our home office located in Zionsville, IN. In-person services may be subject to a travel fee dependent upon drive time to and from the desired location. We provide cognitive screenings, cognitive wellness services and memory loss navigation services in person depending on distance. We also offer the following in-person services as well: Attend care plan conferences Accompaniment to medical appointments to act as an advocate (we do not provide transportation for your loved one) Train healthcare professionals involved in care Provide in-home safety assessments and cognitive screenings
  • My Mom or Dad feel they are managing everything ok. Do you ever work with just the adult children?
    Yes! Actually, a majority of our clients are part of the "sandwich generation" managing the care of their own children while managing the care of their aging parents. Sometimes we might have a spouse join sessions later. All of our sessions are individualized to your unique needs and your unique family dynamics.
  • I have a friend who could really benefit from this service. Can I gift a session to them?
    Absolutely! We have gift certificates available for purchase. Click Here to purchase a gift certificate.
  • How is Memory Loss Navigation support different from your Cognitive Wellness Plan?
    Our Cognitive Wellness Plan involves direct interaction with the individual living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), Alzheimer's, dementia, frontotemporal dementia, vascular dementia, lewy body dementia, Parkinson's Disease, Primary Progressive Aphasia, hearing loss or general aging. Our Cognitive Wellness Plan and our Memory Loss Navigation Consultations are a private pay service that is not covered by insurance. The frequency is determined together by the family and your consultant. Some families enjoy the benefit of having our Cognitive Wellness Services check in on their loved one weekly, monthly, or quarterly to monitor home safety and cognitive status. Other families enjoy having their loved one as part of our Cognitive Wellness Plan receiving weekly or bi-weekly cognitive stimulation sessions! Memory Loss Navigation Consultations are provided on an as-needed basis and the sessions are with the care partners and family, not the individual living with dementia. Some care partners choose to meet bi-weekly for 1:1 counseling, support, and individualized recommendations regarding challenges that arise while others choose to meet monthly or on an as needed basis. The Memory Compass is here when you need us! We will help you design a plan that fits your needs.
