Memory Screenings

Acorn Home Care Services will sponsor a memory screening in partnership with Fearrington Cares, and with tools and assistance from the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

Location:  Fearrington Cares Office, Fearrington Village, Pittsboro, NC  27312

Date:  Thursday, January 29, 2015

Time:  Firm times will be set shortly.  The screening will run from late morning till the early afternoon.

For additional information, please contact our office.

Memory screenings are appropriate for individuals who may be concerned about deteriorating memory or, possibly, dementia.  They also make sense for people who do not have a memory concern currently, but who would like to establish a baseline for future comparison.

Be aware that memory screening is not performed in order to diagnose a particular illness.  Screenings do not replace consultation with your physician or other qualified healthcare professional.

Consider the following bullet points to see if you ought to consider a memory screening.

  • Have friends observed changes in my personality or behavior?
  • Is it hard for me to concentrate?
  • Do I misplace things often?
  • Do I have difficulty remembering words in conversation?
  • Do I often forget people’s names?
  • Do I forget where I am or where I am going?
  • Do friends tell me that I repeat things over and over?
  • Have I ever gotten lost while walking or driving?
  • Am I becoming more forgetful?
  • Is it becoming hard for me to perform familiar tasks?
