Remediation of memory disorders

Show Summary Details

Preview

Memory disorders are frequently encountered in clinical practice and cause significant disability. Memory should therefore be carefully assessed as part of routine clinical assessment. Restoration of normal functioning is not typically possible and remediation is therefore usually concerned with compensating for impaired memory. A range of treatment approaches is available, and the treatment of choice will depend on the form and severity of memory disorder and the functional problems faced by the patient.
