In conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, SAGE Eldercare is partnering with Overlook Medical Center to conduct free and confidential memory screenings on Thursday, November 19, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. The program will be held at Overlook Medical Center in the auditorium, located at 99 Beauvoir Avenue, Summit.
Memory screenings are used for anyone concerned about memory loss or for those who may be experiencing warning signs of dementia. Family and friends who have noticed changes in their loved ones or people who believe they are at risk due to a family history of Alzheimer’s disease or related illness may want to get a screening.
“Screenings are also appropriate for anyone who does not have a concern right now, but would like a baseline measurement for their memory for future comparison,” stated Stephanie Kresch, Director of Community Relations for SAGE Eldercare. “We are proud to be providing this important service in conjunction with Overlook Medical Center and the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.”
Following the memory screenings, Michelle Papka, Ph.D., Founder and Director of the Cognitive Research Center of New Jersey, will present a lecture at noon.
Dr. Papka specializes in the assessment of age-related dementias and adult cognitive disorders. The Cognitive Research Center of New Jersey provides services in collaboration with other highly experienced, professional specialists to offer multi-disciplinary assessments of patients with age-related dementias, and is affiliated with the Atlantic Neuroscience Institute at Overlook Medical Center in Summit.
