As part of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s (AFA) National Memory Screening Program, The ARK will offer free confidential memory screenings on Wednesday, November, 2. Screenings are 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall at St. Lukes Lutheran Church.

Qualified healthcare professionals will administer the memory screenings and provide educational materials about memory concerns, brain health and caregiving.  The face-to-face screenings consist of a series of questions and tasks, and take about 15 minutes to administer.

Memory screenings are a significant first step toward finding out if a person may have a memory problem; memory issues can be caused by Alzheimer’s disease or other medical conditions. Please remember that screening results are not a diagnosis and do not replace consultation with a qualified physician or other healthcare professional. This community Memory Screening is registered with Alzheimer’s Foundation of America National Memory Screening Program.

Interested participants should call The ARK at 843-832-2357 to reserve their personal memory and or hearing screening appointment. Walk-ins are welcome.

Come early for your screening or stay later and take advantage of many community resources.
