An estimated 5.4 million people in the U.S. are living with Alzheimer’s disease, including thousands of people who live in Oklahoma.
As people age, the concern becomes — Am I becoming forgetful because that’s what happens when people age, or am I in the early stages of dementia?
This month, you or your loved one can sign up for a free memory loss screening.
Before the screenings, Vicki Escajeda, of Integris Mental Health, will discuss issues related to memory loss, including the early detection and treatment of dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain disease, such as Alzheimer’s disease. It affects memory, thinking and behavior.
You will need to make a reservation for the screening, which will take place:
- Friday, April 20, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
2900 SW 119th Street, Oklahoma City
- Wednesday, April 25, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
2424 NW 50th Street, Oklahoma City
Registration will begin at 12:30 p.m., followed by the 1 p.m. presentation. After that, mental health professionals will provide free individual memory loss screening tests from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
