At the University of Utah Center for Alzheimer's Care Imaging and Research (CACIR), we are dedicated to diagnosing and caring for Alzheimer’s and related memory disorders and finding more effective treatments for these devastating conditions. The Center works to raise dementia care standards by empowering patients, caregivers and physicians with the most current knowledge available, including the latest advances in research.

Each patient who visits CACIR receives care from a team of dementia experts, who work closely to provide definitive diagnosis and a personalized management plan. The Center employs state-of-the-art diagnostic methods such as positron emission tomography (PET) imaging to help distinguish between the many different causes of dementia.

We are most effective when we can see patients early and begin the appropriate interventions. Early detection is key to improving treatment for Alzheimer’s and memory disorders, so please come and see us as soon as you experience symptoms. Symptoms can include memory loss that disrupts daily life, impaired thinking ability, confusion, and changes in mood or personality.
