Free Memory Screening
Get screened for early signs of memory loss
Are you concerned about your memory?
It is important, as we get older, to recognize the changes we may experience, especially in relation to our memory. A cognitive screen/memory screen is defined as a wellness tool that helps identify possible changes in memory and cognition. It creates a baseline of where a person is at so that future changes can be monitored. This is not a diagnostic tool, but a screen that can provide early detection for dementia.
Why is it important to get a memory screen?
It allows persons with dementia to prioritize and to be proactive in planning for their futures; Current treatments are more effective in earlier stages of Alzheimer’s disease; there is greater opportunity to educate caregivers; it may improve quality of life for persons with dementia and their families and may help to control long term care costs.
How does a memory screen work?
The memory screen process is very simple in which you will be asked to answer some questions and complete a task. The memory screen is at no cost. The screen takes about 15-30 minutes.

The Greendale Health Dept. is excited to offer “Stop the Bleed” training.
Did you know that trauma is the number one cause of death for Americans under the age of 45, and it is estimated that 1 of 5 of these deaths is preventable. While active attacker situations have been a driving force behind the Stop the Bleed program a person is more likely to experience life-threatening bleeding in an accident at work, home or on the road. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. With the appropriate training and resources, you could be the difference between life and death for a stranger, co-worker, friend, or family member. This class will include lecture and hands-on training in tourniquet application, wound packing, and pressure dressings.
