)-- Memory loss (http://www.prevagen.com) screening is encouraged by maker of brain nutrition supplement Prevagen® for those concerned about memory loss and successful aging in honor of National Memory Screening Day, November 17th. More than 2,100 sites at community venues nationwide are offing free confidential memory screenings and education for successful aging during November and December.
“We encourage anyone who might be experiencing any of the memory loss warning signs such as having trouble recalling words or names in conversations, misplacing things often, becoming forgetful, having trouble concentrating, or walking into a room and forgetting why they are there, etc., to find a memory screening location and take the free test,” says neuroscience researcher Mark Underwood, president of the Madison, Wisconsin-based biotech company, Quincy Bioscience, maker of Prevagen.
“This is also a wonderful opportunity for those simply concerned about memory loss and successful aging to do the screening to see how their memory is now for future comparisons,” says Underwood.
The National Memory Screening Process is a simple and safe evaluation tool done by qualified healthcare professionals including social workers, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and physicians that checks memory and other cognitive skills. The screening is conducted in a private setting and consists of a series of questions and/or tasks designed to test memory, language skills, thinking ability and other intellectual functions. More information can be found at www.nationalmemoryscreening.org.
The person administering the screening goes over the confidential results with the person who took the test and can suggest whether the person should follow-up with a physician or other qualified healthcare practitioners. A memory screening is not used to diagnose any particular illness and does not replace consultation with a qualified physician or other healthcare professional
Some memory problems can be readily improved, such as those caused by vitamin and nutritional deficiencies.
