URegina, USask establish memory clinic in Esterhazy


The University of Regina’s Dementia Supports in Rural Saskatchewan (DSRS) team has opened a memory clinic in the Esterhazy District Medical Clinic in partnership with the University of Saskatchewan’s Rural Dementia Action Research (RaDAR) team. The Esterhazy memory clinic will be led by Dr Mandi Nel and will provide assessment and management support for people with symptoms of or concerns about dementia and memory loss. “The RaDAR memory clinics provide access to dementia diagnosis and support in rural communities, saving travel to specialists,” said USask Professor and Chair of Rural Health Delivery Dr Debra Morgan. “We are excited to launch another clinic in Esterhazy with the outstanding team there.”
