National Memory Screening Day

11/7/2011

Senior living communities around the country will be hosting confidential memory screenings on November 15th! National Memory Screening Day takes place during National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and is aimed at early detection and intervention of memory problems. Around 2,500 locations countrywide are opening their doors to support the 9th annual NMSD promoted by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA).

Locations across the country include senior living facilities, senior centers, pharmacies, libraries, Alzheimer’s agencies, and other community sites. Healthcare professionals such as social workers and nurses administer the screenings. Screenings include a number of tasks and questions, the tests do not result in a diagnosis rather they encourage those with abnormal results to get a full medical exam. Early detection of memory problems may help to slow the progression of symptoms, making a positive impact on an individual’s quality of living.
