National Memory Screening Day

November 15, 2011 is National Memory Screening Day. National Memory Screening Day was established in 2003 by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America “as part of its mission to provide optimal care and services to individuals confronting dementia and to their caregivers and families.” National Memory Screening Day hopes to help promote early detection of memory problems so that medical assistance, intervention and direction can be obtained early in the process.

Who should participate in National Memory Screening Day? According to the National Memory Screening Day website ( www.nationalmemoryscreening.org) it is anyone who answers “yes” to these types of questions:

Am I more forgetful?
Am I having trouble concentrating?
Am I having difficulty performing familiar tasks?
Are my family and friends saying I am repeating questions or saying the same thing over and over again?

As is pointed out on the National Memory Screening Day website, if the answers to these questions are yes, it does not necessarily mean that the person is suffering from dementia. The memory issues could be the result instead of treatable conditions such as vitamin deficiencies or thyroid problems.

The goal of the memory screening is to encourage people to seek answers rather than to suffer in silence or fear. Appropriate medical treatments can make a difference in the quality of life. Medical intervention can also be the first step in providing direction and support for family members who want to help, but don’t know what to do.
