Screenings consist of a series of questions to gauge memory, language and thinking skills. The memory screening takes approximately 10 minutes and is confidential. Participants will be provided with the results on-site. Results are not a diagnosis, but a memory screening can suggest if someone should see a physician for a full evaluation.
The program is free of charge, however, appointments are required and will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Those interested in getting a free memory screening can schedule an appointment by calling Senator Phillips’ office at (516) 746-5924 or the Alzheimer's Foundation of America at (866) 232-8484.
