Pine Rest and Partners Offer Free Memory Screening

During Alzheimer’s disease awareness month in November, Pine Rest will offer two free memory screenings and partner with Metro Health on a third on Nov. 13, 2012. No appointments are necessary at any of the locations.  

According to the World Alzheimer Report 2012 released by London-based Alzheimer’s Disease International, about 36 million people worldwide are living with dementia and the numbers will more than triple to 115 million by 2050. The global cost of the disease is estimated at $604 billion.  

People that are affected or family members and friends may not know how to begin the conversation about memory loss. These screenings could be a non-threatening way to start. They are free, confidential, and open to the public. Those screened will learn about treatment options and be able to pick up educational handouts on memory loss, its symptoms, and how it affects people.
