What Are Memory Screenings?
A memory screening is a simple, quick, noninvasive “healthy brain checkup” that tests memory and other thinking skills through a brief series of questions and/or tasks. Memory screenings are not a diagnosis of any particular illness but can indicate whether the person should see their physician for additional testing. Learn more about memory screenings
Why Should I Be Screened?
Just as we regularly get screenings for other parts of our bodies, it’s important to give our brains a checkup, too. early detection of memory issues provides an opportunity for your doctor to identify and address the condition causing memory problems.
