HPH Hospice offers free memory screenings for people 50 and older

PASCO/HERNANDO COUNTIES

HPH Hospice has memory tests for ages 50-plus

HPH Hospice will offer free 20-minute memory screenings for people 50 and older who are concerned about memory impairment. The screenings will be offered between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. July 20 and 21 at the HPH Hospice office at 12260 Cortez Blvd. Participants meet privately with Jerry Fisher, program specialist for the Alzheimer's Association Florida Gulf Coast Chapter. The screening is not a diagnostic tool and not intended for those with dementia or Alzheimer's, but is helpful in determining if there is a serious problem. Appointments are required. Call Jen Carlevatti at (352) 573-8514.
