  • — Do you or a relative forget names? Ever get lost? Is your memory loss normal?
    Memory screenings are a significant first step toward finding out if a person may have a memory problem. Alzheimer’s disease or other medical conditions could cause memory problems.
    A memory screening is not used to diagnosis any particular illness and does not replace consultation with a physician or other qualified healthcare professional.
    Don’t let your memory worsen. Free memory tests are available. Schedule your appointment today at one of the Wayne County Senior centers.
    Sign up is required. Call 570-253-4262 to schedule your time slot.
    Time slots will be 20 minutes from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the following locations:
    Wednesday, June 12, Honesdale Senior Center
    Thursday, June 27, Hamlin Senior Center
    Tuesday, July 23, Hawley Senior Center
    Thursday, Aug. 1, Northern Wayne Fire Company
    Visit the Wayne County Area Agency on Aging’s website for information about all of their programs at http://aging.co.wayne.pa.us.
    The presentation is by NEPA Memory and Alzheimer’s Center Geriatric Research & Consulting Group of Plains.
