The evening will conclude with audience participation and reading recommendations.

This score is then utilized annually to determine if a loss is present to trigger a medical visit before valuable memory is lost forever. In addition, a recent study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may reduce the incidence of cognitive decline.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m. in the Coalition office at Sun Towers, 101 Trinity Lakkes Drive, Sun City Center, Suite 254.  Did you know a vitamin deficiency can exhibit the same symptom as dementia? With annual memory screenings, you will be able to identify a decline in memory in order to address it and hopefully reverse it altogether which is the goal of the Coalition! Maintaining good brain health begins with a simple screening to establish a baseline score. This score is then utilized annually to determine if a loss is present to trigger a medical visit before valuable memory is lost forever. In addition, a recent study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may reduce the incidence of cognitive decline. Make your appointment today to have your memory screened along with your hearing. By appointment only. To schedule, call the Coalition at 813-419-4902 Interested in learning more about Clinical?
