Memory screenings help identify potential memory problems which may need more extensive evaluation. They also provide education and reassurance to those with mild age-associated changes who may otherwise worry they have a dementia. Screenings take 20 minutes and are confidential. Screenings do not include a formal diagnosis but rather provide an indication if symptoms of memory loss are present and should be further evaluated by a medical professional. For an appointment, please call Victoria Haeselbarth at 508-627-4368 ex. 15.
