While we are still taking care of patients, for the protection of patients during the coronavirus pandemic the Alzheimer & Memory Center (AMC) is temporarily postponing all in-person visits.

We are seeing new and follow up patients when appropriate and if desired through video visits; for other needs, we will postpone appointments until we can see patients in person again.

Although no one will be on site to answer the phone, we are retrieving voicemails. We will call you back as soon as we can, though doing things at a distance causes delays, so please be patient. Please be aware that the return call will be from a blocked number.

Please check back as we will update this site as new information becomes available.

Thank you and stay safe.

–Loren Alving, MD, Director


Additionally, we work in concert with the nine other California Alzheimer’s Disease Centers to improve dementia care in the State of California.

Our Mission 

The UCSF Fresno Alzheimer & Memory Center (AMC) is a center of excellence in dementia diagnosis and treatment. As one of the ten California Alzheimer’s Disease Centers established by the State of California in 1984, the AMC serves patients and families in a broad geographical area, from Modesto to Bakersfield. We provide training to medical professionals in the care of dementia patients, and we provide education, social support, and care management to caregivers.
