Free Memory Screenings

Johnson & Johnson's website "Strength for Caring" publishes "Caregiver News" which is chock full of resource information for eldercaregivers. On May 26, 2009, they reported on the following program of free memory screenings:

"As part of its ongoing initiative to promote early detection of memory problems and successful aging, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) recently introduced a new program that encourages local organizations across the country to offer free, confidential memory screenings and education about brain health throughout the year."

A full article on this important program is available at the following website:


I recommend taking advantage of this resource if it is available in your community. So please stop worrying about memory loss and get yourself or your loved one screened tomorrow.

These free memory screenings are a great idea. I think everyone should bring out their older family members to get tested. Catch it early so you can start early on prevention.
