Memory Screenings - get checked!
10:30-12pm every third Tuesday of each month. Locations vary, call the office at 360-671-3316 to find out where the next one will be.
Memory screenings make sense for anyone concerned about memory loss or
experiencing warning signs of dementia; whose family and friends have
noticed changes in them; or who believe they are at risk due to a family
history of Alzheimer’s disease or a related illness. Screenings also are
appropriate for anyone who does not have a concern right now, but who
wants to see how their memory is now and for future comparisons.
These questions might help you decide if you should be screened. If you
answer “yes” to any of them, you might benefit from a memory screening.
- Am I becoming more forgetful?
- Do I have trouble concentrating?
- Do I have difficulty recalling words or names in conversations?
- Am I misplacing things more often?
- Do I sometimes forget where I am or where I am going?
- Do my friends tell me that I am repeating questions or saying the same thing over and over again?
- Have I become lost when walking or driving?
- Have my family or friends noticed changes in my mood, behavior, personality or desire to do things?
Note: A memory screening is not used to diagnose any particular illness and
does not replace consultation with a qualified physician or other healthcare
The Alzheimer Society of Washington is committed to ensuring more
memory screenings are provided throughout Washington State.
