Caregiver Burnout Screenings

healthstar fair 7at the MN State Fair

Concerned about your memory or maybe a loved ones?

Are you exhausted, frustrated or confused about how to care for someone?

Wow yesterday was a Fantastic Day at the Minnesota State Fair with HealthStar Home Health.  It was amazing talking to all the people and hearing their personal stories about life with dementia.  Lots of people were interested in taking a Memory Screening so they would have a baseline for not only themselves, but their Doctor.

HealthStar will be at the fair providing:

FREE Screenings August 21 – September 1

from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM in the

East Crossroads Auditorium/ HealthFair 11 Bldg.

Lots of GREAT RESOURCES!

Face-to-face memory screenings average five minutes and consist of questions and tasks to assess memory. Individuals can take advantage of free, confidential memory screenings provided by HealthStar Home Health, as part of raising community awareness and providing public education on Alzheimer’s and dementia. HealthStar & the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America encourages screenings for adults with memory concerns, a family history of Alzheimer’s disease or those who want to check their memory now and have the results for future comparison. Warning signs of dementia include forgetting people’s names/events, asking repetitive questions, and confusion over daily routines.

healthstar fair 9

As many as 70% of families affected by dementia are choosing to keep their loved ones at home for as long as possible, while managing the different stages. Family and caregiver burnout rises dramatically when faced with this disease. HealthStar’s Alzheimer’s & Dementia program provides both in and out of home support to families and caregivers dealing with challenging behaviors associated with the disease. Changes in healthcare, due to high prevalence, allow our nursing experts to provide training, education and non-pharmacologic behavior assistance in the home, which is 100% covered by traditional Medicare and most insurance plans. Memory loss screenings are the first step toward detection and treatment.
