McKee Medical Center sponsors event for National Memory Screening Day
National Memory Screening Day provides free, confidential memory screenings to people concerned about memory loss with the objective of early detection and intervention. Interested people can make appointments between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.-3 p.m. on Nov. 13 for a free screening. Screenings take place at the McKee Conference and Wellness Center, 2000 Boise Ave., Loveland.
To make an appointment for a screening, call (970) 203-6631.
A memory screening is not used to diagnose any specific illness and it does not replace consultation with a qualified physician or healthcare professional. A screening can check a person’s memory and other thinking skills. It can indicate if someone might benefit from a more complete medical visit.
Because with early diagnosis, some memory problems can be treated or managed to improve quality of life, it is important to determine whether a person has a disorder.
Banner Health Clinic neurologist Srinivas Bandi, MD, will lead a boxed lunch discussion beginning at noon to talk about the effects of aging on memory and what is considered normal age-related memory loss. The fee for the lunch is $7.50, and reservations can be made by calling (970) 635-4097.
