On a yearly basis, we get physicals, which typically includes bloodwork and other testing however most of us have not had a memory test. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is now recommending that everyone gets a baseline memory screening, then a yearly follow up memory exam to look for cognitive changes.

Signs that it might be time to talk to a doctor include:

  • Asking the same questions over and over again
  • Getting lost in places a person knows well
  • Not being able to follow directions
  • Becoming more confused about time, people, and places
  • Not taking care of oneself—eating poorly, not bathing, or being unsafe

A memory screening is a simple and safe evaluation that consists of a series of questions and/or tasks designed to test memory, language skills, thinking ability, and other intellectual functions. We will review your medical history and medications you are currently taking, as well as discuss any memory concerns you may have. Your results will be made available for you to take home or if you prefer, we can send them to your physician if follow-up is suggested. 

All information is confidential, following all HIPAA guidelines. No insurance is required. 

The free memory screening is NOT used to diagnose any particular illness and does NOT replace consultation with a physician or other clinician.
