Free Memory Screening on Nov. 18

memory sreen logoConcerned about memory problems?

Please join us on November 18, 2015 for our annual memory screening day, an initiative of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. Take advantage of free, confidential memory screenings and pick up free educational materials about memory concerns, dementia, caregiving and successful aging.

Memory screenings are a significant first step toward finding out if a person may have a memory problem. Memory problems could be caused by Alzheimer’s disease or other medical conditions. A memory screening is not used to diagnose any particular illness and does not replace consultation with a physician or other qualified healthcare professional.

Location: Somerset County Senior Wellness Center
Time: 9:00am – 12:00pm
To Register: 908-204-3435

Screenings take approximately 15 minutes. You will be given an appointment time.

This local screening is sponsored in partnership by the Office on Aging and Disability Services and the VNA of Somerset Hills.
