Memory screenings are a first step toward addressing concerns about memory loss. While a memory screening is not the only tool used to diagnose Alzheimer's disease, it can be helpful to identify any brain health concerns.
A memory screening evaluates your memory and other brain functions to determine your strengths and any deficiencies that may need to be addressed. Memory screenings can also be reassuring and serve as a benchmark for monitoring your brain health over time. The consultations also include resources on maintaining brain health throughout the lifespan, and our staff will partner with you throughout the process with more information, referrals, and planning next steps.
Free, confidential memory screenings are offered year-round by appointment by calling (903) 509-8323. In collaboration with the UT Tyler Memory Assessment Research Center, all memory screenings and neuropsychological testing is offered free of charge in our office.
