Free memory screenings
July 1, 2018
Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska offers free confidential memory screenings by appointment at any of its office locations. Memory screenings play a significant role in determining if you have a memory problem. They can serve as a baseline for people to use as a comparison later in life, or a first step in validating someone’s concern with memory loss or Alzheimer’s disease.
Memory screenings do not provide a diagnosis. They test memory, language skills, learning and other cognitive abilities by asking a series of questions and having the participant perform a few problem-solving tasks. They are confidential and often less intimidating for those concerned with memory loss because they can be done without a complete doctor’s examination by a number of qualified professionals.
Memory screenings must be done in person.
