Sandra Eskenazi Center for Brain Care Innovation - Eskenazi Health

The Sandra Eskenazi Center for Brain Care Innovation at Eskenazi Health is the new destination of hope for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, late-life onset of depression and anxiety, early schizophrenia and those recovering from time in an intensive care unit. It is the first center of its kind in the United States to combine pioneering research and clinical care, yielding faster and more effective outcomes for the patient and caregiver.

The patient and caregiver are treated as a team, with caregivers and family members becoming active participants in care and having significant responsibility for the overall success of treatment.

While it primarily involves patients and their families in Indianapolis and Central Indiana, the Sandra Eskenazi Center’s model will be scalable for national locations, age groups and diseases. To support the Sandra Eskenazi Center for Brain Care, please visit

Dementia and Depression

Like other chronic diseases, Alzheimer’s disease cannot be cured, but it can be managed. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. It is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

Major depression is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States and it often occurs with dementia.

Psychosis and Early-Onset Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is one of the most severe and disabling diseases facing mankind. It begins early in life, typically in the late teens and early 20s, then follows a downward course that progresses into a lifelong illness marked by untold personal suffering.

Individuals afflicted with schizophrenia and other psychotic illnesses lead lives marked by social isolation, unemployment, disorganized thinking and lack of touch with reality. The suicide rate is high (up to 10 percent), and affected individuals die at much younger ages than their healthy peers – up to 20 years earlier.

Post-Intensive Care Unit Recovery

The Eskenazi Health Critical Care Recovery Center team assesses and cares for the patient in all areas affected by critical illness: cognitive, functional, behavioral and psychological. The program is designed to supplement, not replace, treatment from a patient’s primary care provider.
