(WAOW) -- The Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) announced that it will be providing free, confidential memory screenings digitally.
The AFA's National Memory Screening program is every Monday and Wednesday from 10 am - 4 pm ET, beginning July 8.
Screenings are one-on-one through video conference, and open to everyone regardless of age or insurance.
“Memory screenings are an important part of a good health and wellness routine. We want to make sure that individuals can obtain them from the safety and comfort of their own homes,” said Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., AFA’s president & CEO. “Being proactive about your brain health is critically important, which is why we encourage everyone to take advantage of this free service.”
The memory screenings take 10-15 minutes and consists of questions to gauge memory, language, thinking skills, and other intellectual functions.
The AFA states that the results of these screenings are not a diagnosis, but can suggest if someone should see a physician for a full evaluation.
A webcam and an appointment is necessary to participate in the program. To make an appointment call the AFA at 866-232-8484.
