Why get your memory tested?

You care about your health and wellness. You have your blood pressure and cholesterol checked regularly by a medical professional. Your mental health is just as important for your overall well-being. We use standardized memory tests that have been used on millions of people in clinical and research settings. After a couple of simple assessments, we can provide you with information about how your memory compares to others in your age group. If your results show that you may be experiencing memory problems, beyond normal, age-related issues, we are ready to assist you.

Why do we offer this free service?

Centricity Memory Clinic conducts clinical trials, researching new medications that are being developed for various disease states. This research is an important part of the process in developing new treatments for conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. By attending a memory clinic, you are in no way obligated to participate in research.

Memory Clinic Process

Centricity Memory Clinic provides free memory testing that allows individuals to gauge the current state of their memory. To accomplish this, we perform two tests, the MMSE (Mini Mental State Examination) and the FCSRT (Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test). The FCSRT is very sensitive at detecting subtler, mild memory loss that other assessments may not pick up on. The memory assessment appointment is approximately 30 minutes in length. Each participant has the option to have his or her results saved in our database and the option to be invited back for re-testing in the future. As Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive impairment in memory, these options allow individuals and Centricity Memory Clinic to track memory abilities over time. Individual’s memory-test scores can also be shared with each individual’s family doctor.

If you are interested in participating, a member of our staff can provide you with more information about our current research. Participation in a clinical trial is entirely voluntary and completely free of charge. Click here to contact us.
