Receive comprehensive dementia care and support as part of your Medicare benefits

The Guiding an Improved Dementia Experience (GUIDE) model is CMS’s new program for supporting Medicare beneficiaries living with dementia, as well as their families. Isaac Health is a proud participant right from the launch in July 2024.


At the center of the model is your personal care navigator who will be your main personal contact point throughout the dementia care journey. The GUIDE model is not a trial, but rather a support program offered by select specialist providers.

Why choose Isaac Health for GUIDE?

Isaac Health is a specialist medical group focused purely on serving patients with brain health conditions, such as dementia, and their families. We are under the clinical leadership of Joel Salinas, MD, a leading neurologist specializing in Alzheimer’s and related disorders.

By choosing Isaac Health as your provider, you will receive compassionate care based on the latest evidence based treatment and management protocols. From diagnosis to treatment and symptom management, we’re here for you.

Isaac Health’s GUIDE Program is designed to help you live your best life.

Around-the-clock support

Isaac Health is always there for you and your family. As a member of our GUIDE program, you will have access to dementia-trained specialists and support staff through our 24/7 support line.

A personal care navigator

Your care navigator will be your personal guide through the whole journey and will check in with you or your loved one regularly. They can also make referrals to other specialists and community support organizations.

A dedicated medical team

Our specialist doctors and nurse practitioners will perform a detailed assessment upon enrollment and at least once a year. Your medical team will create a personalized treatment plan for you or your loved one.

Caregiver support

We host caregiver training sessions for our GUIDE members. Our specialized caregiver coaches also provide 1:1 sessions to go over what dementia is and what it may mean for your family. Additionally, we run support groups and group activities for members and families.

Respite care

Everyone deserves to take a break. Respite care allows caregivers to take a temporary rest from caregiving, while a trained home care aide comes to your home to look after you. As a member of our GUIDE Program, you will have 24 annual slots for respite care.

Fully covered by Medicare

If you are enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B, you can receive all the above benefits as a member of Isaac Health’s GUIDE Program – at no cost to you.

I cannot say enough about Stephanie as a gift in working with my memory questions. The process worked so well that over the weeks that we talked, I noticed I stopped having concerns about my memory as I aged because I could see that it was working.

Bill

We had a great experience with Isaac Health. After months of trying different options and being on waiting lists for several memory clinics, Dr Salinas and his team made everything so easy. We got a telehealth appointment for my mother a day after we booked. The team arranged all the diagnostics our local area. Now my mother is receiving cognitive therapy. I don't know how else I would have done this while working full time.

Marissa

After 4 sessions, I have seen huge improvement in my memory! I am able to remember names, list of items, etc. with little effort. My coach Irene is clear in explaining, never rushed, patient, and very supportive! I am so glad I found Isaac Health!

Sonia

Dr. Salinas is knowledgable, thorough, and compassionate. He took his time and didn’t rush. I was very pleased.
