Kenosha County ADRC offers free memory tests every Monday

The Kenosha County Aging and Disability Resource Center offers free, confidential memory tests every Monday from 8 am to noon.

Memory tests are suggested for anyone concerned about changes in memory, at risk for Alzheimer’s disease due to family history, or who wants to check their memory now for future comparisons.

Some memory problems can be easily treated, such as those caused by vitamin deficiencies or thyroid problems. In general, the earlier the diagnosis, the easier it is to treat memory loss. Memory testing can:

  • Provide relief to people concerned about normal memory loss;
  • Lead to diagnosis of treatable conditions;
  • Offer the ability to make lifestyle changes early when they have the greatest potential for positive effect and the opportunity to participate in future decision-making.
