Free Memory Screening
CLIFTON, NJ – The Clifton Health Department and Hackensack Meridian Health Mountainside Medical Center will be offering a FREE Memory Assessment for Clifton residents on April 24, 2018 from 2 pm-4 pm at the Clifton Health Department, 900 Clifton Ave., 2nd Floor.  Registration is required.  Please call the Clifton Health Department at 973-470-5760 to register.  A memory screening does not replace a consultation with a physician; however, it is an important step in finding out if an individual may have a memory problem. Memory loss that begins to disrupt daily life may be a symptom of a dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease that begins with mild memory loss and can possibly lead to loss of the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to the environment. In addition, it can seriously affect a person’s ability to carry out daily activities. Scientists are not exactly sure what causes Alzheimer’s disease. There may not be one single cause, but several factors that can affect each person differently, such as age or a family history of Alzheimer’s disease. The Clifton Health Department encourages you to register for this free Assessment if you would like to test your memory and learn about your risk for Alzheimer’s disease. The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.
