Keep losing your keys? Forget why you walked into a room? For anyone who might be thinking their memory isn't quite what it used to be, the Aging and Disability Resource Center is currently offering a Free Memory Screening. The free, confidential memory screening is aimed at promoting early detection of memory problems and appropriate intervention.
While a memory screening is not the same as a memory evaluation, it can be a helpful test. If someone is experiencing minor memory problems, early evaluation is important. Some memory problems, such as those caused by vitamin deficiencies or thyroid problems can be quickly and easily treated. Others, such as mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer's disease can benefit from early diagnosis and treatment.
The Memory Screen consists of questions and tasks designed to screen for memory, language skills and thinking abilities. The person who administers the screening will review the results with the person being screened, and suggest whether the person should follow up with a physician or other qualified healthcare professional for more extensive testing.
To register for this event, please call 512-0000 ext. 2000 to sign up for your twenty minute screening.
