Welcome to the Memory Care Program

Lecanemab (Leqembi) was recently given accelerated FDA approval for the treatment of mild cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer’s disease and mild Alzheimer’s disease dementia. This medication is an infusion that will be administered twice monthly in an infusion center and requires regular monitoring for side effects through a series of head MRIs. Lecanemab is not covered by insurance with this current provisional approval, so the Memory Care Program is monitoring this situation closely to see when we will be able to offer this medication to our patients. We may not have this information for another 6 months, so we recommend you speak with your Memory Care provider about this first to see if you or your family member potentially qualify. We will be updating our response as we receive more information about lecanemab.
