MemoryCare is a multidisciplinary healthcare practice offering specialist psychiatric and allied services for people over the age of 16. We pride ourselves on our uniquely systemic and collaborative approach to diagnosis, treatment and care planning for individuals and families who experience a variety of mental healthcare challenges.
MemoryCare was established by Dr Ryan Fuller who returned to South Africa in 2010 having specialized in old age psychiatry in London. He was astounded to learn that in the Gauteng region, of over 10 million people, there were no dedicated memory clinics. He was keen to develop a unique model based on established principles that underpin healthcare quality excellence. A particular need in South Africa quickly became apparent given the fragmented services and lack of family structure. Thus, MemoryCare was established in 2011 to fill the much needed gap.
Dr Lolita Mostert, a specialist adult psychiatrist, joined the practice in 2015 thereby extending the MemoryCare model to general adults and no longer just elderly individuals. We believe that treating common psychiatric conditions such as depression, , anxiety, bipolar mood disorder and substance disorders from a multidisciplinary and systemic framework allows us to provide better clinical outcomes and excellence in care.
The motto “to be with” reminds us of the need for quality relationships at a distressing time when people often feel alone.

MemoryCare Patient Testimonials
My husband saw Dr Fuller at Alberton Akeso.
The receptionist was excellent. She was friendly and ready to answer any questions. She told me what was happening when she took my husband to another area She had a lovely sense of humor and put us at ease immediately. She relieved the stress of the appointment considerably.
We found Dr Fuller to be very approachable and gracious. He listened with such patience and clarified a lot of issues for us. We look forward to further help from him in the future.
Thank you for your service.
We cannot, Ryan, let today pass without recording our great indebtedness to you for very much.

Hi Jane, I would like to thank you for being so friendly and helpful for the time that I was in hospital.
