For Those Who Seek Treatment at Kobe University Hospital

Treatment of Dementia-related Illnesses

Over the past decade, we have treated dementia-related illnesses in a specialized outpatient clinic (Memory Clinic) as part of the Psychiatry and Neurology department. The Dementia-related illness Medical Center was opened on November 1, 2009 as designated under the authorization of Kobe City.

In order to enable patients and their families to live comfortably as part of the community, we have created a system where in addition to physicians specializing in dementia treatment, nurses, consultants, and clinical psychologists are assigned to provide both medical and caregiving support.

If there is anything that you are concerned about, please feel free to contact our consultants.

The Center’s task

  • To consult on specialized medical issues
  • To assist in the initial step of differential diagnoses which can lead to the early identification and early treatment of these diseases.
  • To collaborate with the community general support center for dementia-related illness and family doctors.
  • To deal with acute phase of dementia-associated symptoms and complications.
  • To host conferences on dementia treatment and medical collaboration.
  • To provide information on treating dementia-related diseases
  • To conduct training workshops for community medical, health, and welfare professionals.

* We hold workshops twice a year. Please ask for details.

Medical consultations

Consultations are by appointment only. Please call the information desk number listed below.

Handbook on dementia-related illnesses

We issued a pamphlet titled Handbook on Dementia-related Illnesses to help people develop a better understanding of the disorder and the best ways to interact with patients. It also provides explanations on the nursing care insurance services as well as where to go for consultations. We hope this pamphlet will prove useful for those with dementia and their families, as well as the people involved in providing care for these patients
