National Memory Screening Day!

Are you, or someone you love, concerned about memory problems?

Next week ElderCircle will be hosting three FREE & CONFIDENTIAL memory screenings.

Please join us on November 13, 2012 at the Bigfork Valley Specialty Clinic in Bigfork from...
10am - 1pm or at the Goodall Resource Center, Deer River Healthcare Center from 11am - 1pm, or on Thursday, November 15, 2012 at the ElderCircle office, 1105 NW 4th Street, Grand Rapids, from 10am - 12pm. NO APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY.

Memory screenings are a significant first step toward finding out if a person may have a memory problem. Memory problems could be caused by Alzheimer’s disease or other medical conditions. A memory screening is not used to diagnose any particular illness and does not replace consultation with a physician or other qualified healthcare professional.

Questions? Concerns? Visit, or call (toll-free) 866-AFA-8484.
