URMC / Memory Care Program

 

Welcome to the Memory Care Program

Leqembi (lecanemab) was granted full FDA approval for the treatment of mild cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer’s disease and mild Alzheimer’s disease dementia on July 6, 2023. While this is an exciting step forward in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, this medication may not be appropriate for everyone with these diagnoses. If you are interested in finding out if Leqembi (lecanemab) is appropriate for you or your family member, we encourage you to speak with your current Memory Care provider. If you are not a patient at the Memory Care Program, we recommend you speak with your primary care provider to see if a referral to the Memory Care Program is appropriate.
