A free, confidential memory screening—part of National Memory Screening Day on the 19th—is designed to promote proper detection of memory problems. Lutheran Family and Children’s Services counselor Janet Stewart tells KZIM-KSIM that the process is easy and brief!
Stewart says that the day serves as a starting point for discussions about memory concerns and lifestyle changes—diet, managing stress, physical and mental exercise—that may help you age successfully. Memory problems could be caused by Alzheimer’s disease or other medical conditions, and this is just one step in managing your overall longterm health. Stewart says the screenings will take place at LFCS, 3178 Blattner Drive in Cape Girardeau, from 10am-2pm on Tuesday.
