Nantz National Alzheimer Center

Nantz National Alzheimer Center
Alzheimer's is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases, robbing those affected of their independence, cherished memories, and, ultimately, their lives. Since its inception in 2011, the Nantz National Alzheimer Center (NNAC) has become a world-renowned referral center, treating thousands of patients each year. Its goal: slow memory loss progression and improve the quality of life for every patient.

The NNAC provides an environment of comprehensive, compassionate care for patients and their families. The center's interdisciplinary team thoroughly evaluates each patient to ensure all medical conditions affecting memory loss, including hydrocephalus, vascular disease and sleep disorders, are diagnosed and treated. This approach has resulted in dramatic improvements in cognition for many patients.
