Memory Screenings

Memory Screenings will be available each quarter on the 3rd Wednesday through the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Washington County.

A memory screen is a wellness tool that helps identify possible changes in memory and cognition.  It creates a baseline of where a person is at so that future changes can be monitored.  It’s free and only takes 10 minutes.

Memory screenings are available to anyone and can be scheduled by calling Tammy Dickman at 262-335-4497.

Memory Screenings will be available each quarter on the 2nd Wednesday through the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Washington County.

A workshop presented by the Alzheimer’s Association.  The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging.  If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss of behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts.  Early detection gives you a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future.  Registration appreciated.  Please call 800.272.3900 or email sprohuska@alz.org
