Boston, MA (March 1, 2022) – MedVadis Research an independent clinical trial research center, is partnering with Jordan's Furniture to offer free memory screenings. The event takes place on Saturday, March 5, 2022, at the Jordan's Furniture store in Reading, Massachusetts from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Members of the community currently experiencing warning signs of dementia or are at risk of Alzheimer's due to family history with the disease are invited to come in for a free assessment.
The memory screening is a simple 10-minute test conducted by a licensed professional. It includes a series of questions that can be used to gauge memory, thinking skills, and other intellectual functions. While the results are not considered a diagnosis, they can suggest if someone should see a doctor for a full evaluation. Those who participate also receive a memory factor score that can be used as a baseline for future medical assessments.
"Memory screenings are something all adults should include in their health and wellness routine. The reality is, not all memory issues are dementia-related. Many conditions can cause memory loss, including those that are treatable, such as vitamin deficiencies, urinary tract infections, anxiety, and depression. Screenings are an important first step toward detecting a potential problem, and may enable earlier treatments," said David DiBenedetto, M.D., General Director and Principal Investigator at MedVadis Research.
The memory screening event comes at a critical time, with many people complaining about brain fog and confusion after Covid-19. Researchers are now exploring the possibility that infections may cause lingering brain symptoms that may eventually lead to dementia.
