St. John’s Institute for Cognitive Health, in partnership with University of Utah Center for Alzheimer’s Care, Imaging and Research, has announced it will offer free diagnostic and proactive memory care to US veterans in the region. The services include cognitive impairment and memory loss assessments, neuropsychological testing, supplemental diagnostic testing and proactive social work services. The services are being made available at no charge to veterans enrolled in the Veterans Administration’s health care system and are provided onsite at St. John’s Institute for Cognitive Health in locally. Dr. Martha Stearn explains that there is a strong correlation between the military experience and memory problems and the program is intended to provide memory testing and diagnostic services to rural veterans who otherwise might not have easy access to the care they need. Appointments may be made through the medical center by calling 739-7464.
