National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) Supports National Memory Screening Day (NMSD)
Date:11/19/2013

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) is supporting National Memory Screening Day on November 19, an annual initiative of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) in which qualified health care professionals at local sites nationwide provide free, confidential memory screenings, and educational materials to the public. Screening sites include Alzheimer’s agencies, assisted living residences, long-term care facilities, doctors’ offices, hospitals, senior centers, Ys, pharmacies, and other community venues.

As you age, it becomes even more important to make sure the proper legal documents are in place in the event you are unable to care for yourself. NAELA members are well equipped to assist families whose loved ones could be experiencing memory problems, or need advice on caregiving issues and long-term care planning.

“NAELA proudly supports the Alzheimer’s Foundation’s efforts to raise awareness of the need for early detection of memory problems. Early recognition of memory problems can help lead to proper diagnosis and treatment. Also, early diagnosis enables individuals to be more involved in planning for their future care needs. NAELA members are uniquely positioned to provide clients and their families with the tools and information they need to prepare,” said NAELA President Howard S. Krooks, CELA, CAP.
