Council on Aging holding a free Memory Screening Day

The Marion County Council on Aging is sponsoring a free Memory Screening Day on Tuesday, April 14, 2015. Council on Aging staff will be administering a mini-memory exam, which is frequently used as a dementia screening instrument.

While this 30 item screening tool is not used solely as a diagnosis for dementia, it can give an indication of early problems. Studies have shown that the early diagnosis of dementia makes treatment much more effective.

This free screening, which takes place at the Council on Aging office, takes approximately 15 – 20 minutes to administer and is by appointment only. Other information about dementia and Alzheimer’s disease will also be available to interested participants.

Call the Council on Aging, located at 125 Executive Dr.  Suite 102, at 740-387-0401 for further information and appointment times.
