The Alzheimer’s Family Center in Huntington Beach has expanded its program of memory screenings at several locations, including one in Fountain Valley.
Alzheimer’s Center officials say memory screenings should be done every year, just like blood pressure and cholesterol checks.
During the 15-minute screening, a trained professional administers a questionnaire that is clinically designed to determine whether concerns may be related to normal aging or warrant an additional evaluation. Results are presented immediately and are not meant to be a diagnosis. Screenings are completely confidential.
Screenings will be held the last Friday of the month at Palm Island Senior Living Apartments, 11300 Warner Ave. To make an appointment, call (714) 593-9630.
