National Memory Screening Day November 18th, Roseville, MN

Healthstar_logoNational Memory Screening Day – November 18

HealthStar Home Health to Hold FREE Memory Screenings at J. Arthur’s Coffee in Roseville, Minnesota.

After screening 2,200 participants at the MN State Fair, it’s clear, people are concerned about memory loss. 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.

FREE Screenings to be held Tuesday, November 18

10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

J. Arthur’s Coffee Shop,

2441 Rice Street, Roseville, MN 55113.

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.

J. Arthur’s Memory Cafe

Dedicates a Song to

the UK Memory Cafes

In celebration of the holiday season, we at J. Arthur’s Memory Café in Roseville, Minnesota felt it was only right to show our appreciation to the UK Memory Cafés for so graciously sharing their Memory Café Concept with us. 

We are filled with Gratitude!

Although many of our members were not able to join us due to busy holiday schedule, others gladly came out to show their support in our silly but very sincere video to the UK. 

Below are the lyrics to:

The 12 Days of Christmas Memory Café Song©

of Lori La Bey and Alzheimer’s Speak Dec 2011

We encourage you to make you own version supporting the Memory Cafes and send it to us. Let’s see how many versions we can collect while raising awareness at the same time!
