Hudson – Senior Helpers, Pleasantries Adult Day Services, and Elder Resources are encouraging members of the Marlborough community to be proactive about memory health by taking advantage of free, confidential memory screenings and information about successful aging Thursday, Dec. 15. The event is part of an annual initiative that the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) holds each year during National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month.
Senior Helpers, Pleasantries Adult Day Services, and Elder Resources will provide the memory screenings from 10 a.m. to noon at the Hudson Senior Center, 29 Church St. Refreshments will be offered.
Anna Pollard, a local Geriatric Care Manager from Elder Resources will administer the screening, which consists of a series of questions and tasks and takes 10 to 15 minutes. Screening results are not a diagnosis, and individuals with below-normal scores or who have concerns are encouraged to pursue a full medical exam.
To reserve a time for your screening, call 1-978-568-9638.
