Proper Detection and Treatment

 Concerned About Your Memory?

Face-to-face memory screenings average three 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.

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.
