WHAT IS A MEMORY SCREENING?
The screening is non-invasive and consists of a series of questions & tasks which take about 5– 10 minutes to administer. The screenings are used as an indicator of whether a person might benefit from an extensive medical exam, but they are NOT used to diagnose any illness and in no way replace an exam by a primary care physician or specialist. We encourage medical follow-up, at the very least during annual doctor’s visits, to ensure the best monitoring of memory and health concerns.
The screening is free and confidential
The AFA suggests memory screenings for anyone concerned about memory loss or experiencing warning signs of dementia; whose family & friends have noticed changes in them; who believe they are at risk due to a family history of dementia; or who want to see how their memory is now and for future comparisons.
Some memory problems are treatable
Some memory problems can be readily treated, such as those caused by vitamin deficiencies or thyroid problems. The earlier the diagnosis the easier it may be to treat or slow down the condition causing memory problems.
