Alzheimer’s Family Center Welcomes Mercedes Tomioka, MD As New Medical Director
Date:10/7/2017

Alzheimer’s Family Center’s (AFC) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the selection of Mercedes Tomioka M.D. as AFC’s new Medical Director.

Dr. Tomioka has been practicing Internal Medicine and Internal Medicine-Geriatrics since 2003. She graduated from Univ Nac Mayor De San Marcos, Fac De Med, Lima, Peru in 1996 and then completed her residency in Internal Medicine at St. Barnabas Hospital in New York. She then completed a fellowship in Geriatrics at University of California, Davis. She is currently affiliated with Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, CA.

As Medical Director, Dr. Tomioka will play an active role in overseeing AFC’s multi-disciplinary approach to caring for patients with dementia-related conditions. This includes providing medical oversight on medications and health concerns, making recommendations, and serving as a liaison with other physicians.

AFC’s Senior Director of Programs, Monica Macias, stated, “I am very excited to have Dr. Tomioka joining AFC. Her knowledge, skills, and compassion are extremely vital to our patients’ wellbeing. “

Alzheimer’s Family Center (AFC) is Orange County’s only adult day health care facility dedicated exclusively to caring for dementia patients. AFC has a 37-year history of improving the quality of life of families challenged by memory loss, such as Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. Patients benefit through customized programming tailored to the needs of each individual, from the earliest to the most advanced stages of dementia. Families find respite from the demands of caregiving, and the assurance that their loved one is receiving expert memory care, delivered with dignity and respect.

Recent studies show that AFC makes a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of its patients. Our patients experience over 50% fewer falls and a 33% reduction in emergency room visits within 12 months of enrollment in AFC’s programs. As a result, AFC family caregivers find the responsibilities of caregiving to be more manageable when their loved ones are home, away from the center. AFC also provides family caregivers with support and referrals to manage the medical, emotional, and financial challenges of caring for a memory-impaired loved one.
