Pre-register for a Memory Screening

Do you wonder if your memory is normal for your age?

Have you missed an appointment?

Do you hunt for your keys?

So many people over the age of 60 reports these concerns to us that the Emory Goizueta Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center decided to create a free confidential memory screening program for the community.

While a memory screening is not a memory evaluation, it is a helpful test. You will be given a series of questions and tasks (paper & pen assessment) designed to screen for memory, language skills, and thinking abilities. The results will be given to you at the end of the screening. If the screening reveals memory concerns, testing results will be given to you and the next steps will be discussed.

Location: The House of Hope Atlanta

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

*Memory screens are recommended for individuals age 50 and above*

For questions regarding memory screening registration, please contact Crystal Davis at 404-727-6696 or cpdavis@emory.edu.
