Do you provide therapy services?

I’m worried about my memory. How could Cognitive Concierge help me?

These are held monthly and we have a strategy group specifically focused on needs of those with memory difficulties. Our membership packages will allow you to work one-on-one with an ambassador to address specific needs and concerns.
We’re already working with a speech therapist/occupational therapist. What more can Cognitive Concierge offer me?
Our ambassadors go beyond the medical model to work on your behalf as advocates, coaches, and educators. We know therapy we fully support your therapists and your therapy goals. But we go further to bring everyone on your team onto the same page so everyone is working collaboratively on the same goals. In addition, we will remain in place after insurance benefits end. We will support you in maintaining your therapy goals, finding additional community resources in your area, and providing additional education for you and your care team.
Do I need to be good with computers?
