National Memory Screening Day comes to the Northwoods

As part of National Memory Screening Day – an annual initiative of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) – Pastime Club in Minocqua will offer free, confidential memory screenings Tuesday, Nov. 19. 

Screenings will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Lakeland Senior Center, 412 Balsam, Woodruff. 

Qualified healthcare professionals will administer the memory screenings and provide educational materials about memory concerns, brain health and caregiving. The face-to-face screenings consist of a series of questions and tasks, and take five to 10 minutes to administer. 

AFA suggests memory screenings for anyone concerned about memory loss or experiencing warning signs of dementia; whose family and 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. 

Screeners emphasize that results are not a diagnosis, and encourage individuals who score poorly as well as those who still have concerns to pursue a full medical examination.

Though there currently is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, early intervention can improve the quality of an individual’s life; available medications may help slow progression of symptoms and diagnosed individuals can more readily participate in long-term care planning.
