Memory screenings can provide early detections

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - A new year can be a reminder to schedule those annual doctor’s appointments or other checkups we have been putting off.

One of those checkups to include might be a memory screening. The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America offers them for free.

So we wanted to find out who should be screened. Regina Elllis is a National Memory Screening Coordinator with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

You can visit their website or call them at 866-232-8484 to be screened.
