CDAMS is a specialist diagnostic service that aims to assist people experiencing changes to their memory and thinking.
CDAMS provides diagnosis and assessment of the psychological, medical and social difficulties associated with memory changes. It aims to provide information and advice on management and referral to other services as appropriate.
CDAMS does not provide ongoing treatment or case management.
A CDAMS assessment involves medical and allied health consultations. This may include an initial home visit followed by medical and neuropsychological assessment in the clinic.
A family meeting is held at the completion of all assessments to discuss the results and recommendations.
Interpreters can be arranged where English is not the first language of the person to be assessed or their family.

Clients must live in the cities of Stonnington, Port Phillip or Glen Eira.
All referrals must be made through the Caulfield Access unit.
