Nassau County Legislator Rose Marie Walker invites you to have a free Memory Screening sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

A memory screening is a simple and safe “healthy brain check-up” that tests memory and other thinking skills. The memory screening is a series of questions and/or tasks that takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and can indicate if someone might benefit from a comprehensive medical evaluation. It is not used to diagnose any particular illness and does not replace consultation with a physician or other clinician.

Why are memory screenings important? They are a significant first step toward finding out if a person may have a memory problem. Memory problems could be caused by a number of medical conditions, including vitamin deficiencies, thyroid issues, and depression, as well as dementia-related illnesses including Alzheimer’s.


•   Memory screenings consist of a series of questions to gauge memory, language  

     and thinking skills.

 

•   Screenings will take approximately 10 minutes and are confidential.

 

•   Results are provided onsite.

 

•   Results are not a diagnosis, but a memory screening can suggest if someone 

     should see a physician. 


space is limited for screenings and Appointments are required. Please call 516-571-6217 to make an appointment

to schedule a free memory screening
