Yesterday was National Memory Screening Day, an annual initiative of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, and Hearthstone held a memory screening event at Pella Manor, and today Pella Regional will host theirs from 9am to 2pm in the Rehabilitation Department. Screenings will be done on a first come, first served basis, and the staff asks that you enter through the Rehabilitation door at entrance #4. The screenings consist of a series of questions and tasks, and take five to 10 minutes to administer. Tara Leidigh with Pella Regional says she’d like everyone in the community, regardless of age to get screen so they have a baseline to work from in the future.
