VCAAA to Offer Free Memory Screenings to Ventura County Residents


Ventura, Calif. – The Ventura County Area Agency on Aging is continuing to offer 15-minute memory screenings to all Ventura County residents. Screenings are offered on the fourth Thursday of every month from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the VCAAA’s Ventura office located at 646 County Square Drive. The service is free and confidential.

In conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, which initiated a National Memory Screening Program in 2015 to promote optimal care throughout the United States, the VCAAA is dedicating resources to provide assistance in early detection of dementia and/or Alzheimer’s Disease.

Individuals who should be screened include those whose family and friends have noticed changes in memory, mood, or behavior; those who believe they are at risk of Alzheimer’s Disease due to family history; those who wish to establish a ”starting point” for comparison of memory function in the future; and any individual concerned about dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.

The memory screening is not used to diagnose any particular illness and does not replace consultation with a qualified physician or other healthcare professional. Screenings are by appointment only. For more information, or to make any appointment, please contact the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging at (805) 477-7300.

The Ventura County Area Agency on Aging, an agency of the County of Ventura, is the principal agency in Ventura County charged with the responsibility to promote the development and implementation of a comprehensive coordinated system of care that enables older individuals and their caregivers to live in a community-based setting and to advocate for the needs of those 60 years of age and older in the county, providing leadership and promoting citizen involvement in the planning process as well as in the delivery of services.
