Free Memory Screening
There are many reasons why older adults may experience memory
changes. However, memory difficulties such as forgetting recent
events or the content of recent conversations are not part of
normal aging, and may represent the early signs of a disease.
Why worry about what these changes could mean when you can take
a short paper and pencil screening test, at no cost?
Roskamp Institute Clinic provides complimentary memory screening
to adults age 55 and older. The process involves
completing a questionnaire (which can be mailed to your home prior
to your appointment), followed by a short test of your memory
conducted at our office. The test results are reviewed by a specialist
and a letter is sent within two weeks indicating if a further
evaluation is recommended.
Memory screening is an effective method to provide reassurance
for those without serious memory changes, and for early detection
in individuals who may be in the early stages of a dementia. Current
treatment works best when provided early and affords patients
and their loved ones appropriate time to plan for future needs.
The Roskamp Institute Clinic is also happy to provide
memory screening information at local health fairs, senior centers,
or other community events. Memory screening can also be provided

"There are many causes of memory loss. Identifying
the underlying cause is critical for appropriate patient care.
To do that you need a consensus diagnosis from experts in diverse
fields." - Dr. Michael Mullan
