- Early detection can assist your physician with a diagnosis, care plan and treatment.
Who should have a memory screening?
Anyone over the age of 50 should have a baseline memory screening as part of their regular yearly checkup, along with heart-rate, blood pressure and temperature.
If there is a family history of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, early memory screening is advised.
ALL SCREENING IS CONFIDENTIAL AND SHOULD BECOME PART OF YOUR PERMANENT RECORD.
