Many of us have forgetful moments and ask ourselves, “Is it Alzheimer’s or normal signs of aging?”
If you or someone you love is concerned they may be exhibiting signs of dementia or memory loss, a simple memory-screening test may be just the thing to help quell those fears.
Every year on November 18th, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America sponsors a National Memory Screening Day, with tests administered at locations across the United States, including right here at The Watermark at East Hill.
The face-to-face screening is easy and takes less than 15 minutes to complete. Participants will be brought to a private room where they will be asked to answer and perform a series of questions and tasks designed to test memory, language skills, and other intellectual functions.
The screenings will be held from 10 a.m. to noon and will be conducted by Denise Julian, Director of Health Services at The Watermark. Denise and her team of caring and compassionate associates are a great resource when it comes to memory loss and will be available to answer any questions.
The memory screening event is free of charge and open to the public, however reservations are required. To RSVP, please call The Watermark at East Hill at 1-203-262-6868.
