Supporting, Not Supplanting, Primary Care Providers.

Georgia Memory Net is dedicated to providing Primary Care Providers with the resources they need to get fast, accurate diagnoses for their patients who exhibit signs of memory loss or cognitive impairment. Then we provide planning and connection to community services to support Primary Care Providers in the ongoing care of their patients. Georgia Memory Net is made possible by a mandate from Georgia State Legislature.
