National Memory Screening Day is Tuesday, November 18. And the Roseville Alzheimer’s and Dementia Community Action Team is co-sponsoring two memory screening sights for residents or their loved ones who may be concerned about memory loss.
Memory loss can be a sensitive subject. We all occasionally forget things. But if memory loss is becoming more frequent it’s worth looking into.
A memory screening is a simple and safe evaluation tool that checks memory and other thinking skills. It can also indicate whether an additional check up by a qualified healthcare professional is needed.
Free memory screenings will be held on Nov. 18 at J. Arthur’s Coffee Shop, 2441 Rice Street from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and at Rose Pointe independent Senior Living Apartments, 2555 Hamline Ave. N., from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
A memory screening is not used to diagnose any particular illness and does not replace consultation with a physician or other healthcare professional but can be useful for individuals who may have noticed a change in memory abilities or who have concerns about risk factors.
