No Cost Memory Screenings

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Coastal Connecticut Research in New London is offering no cost, confidential memory screenings as a service to the community for memory loss or suspected early signs of Alzheimer’s.

If you are concerned about memory loss, have a family history of memory loss, or live with someone experiencing suspected memory loss call Coastal Connecticut Research at (860) 443-4567 to book a screening appointment.  Evaluations take around 30 minutes and results can be forwarded to health care providers with consent.

Since the inception of the Alzheimer’s national memory screening program over 2.5 million people have been screened worldwide.  Locally, Coastal Connecticut Research has conducted over 100 free memory screenings as part of this Alzheimer’s initiative. Memory screenings are a significant first step towards identifying memory problems.   The screenings are conducted by medical staff trained as Qualified Dementia Care Specialists, the highest level of certification awarded by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

Coastal Connecticut Research is located at 342 Montauk Avenue in New London.  Visit to learn more about the research site.

Free Memory Testing

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

This past fall, Coastal Connecticut Research has provided over 40 free memory screenings as a service to the community.  We are an associate member of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and the screenings are part of the National Memory Screening program.

Our memory screenings have taken place during our Mobile Memory Clinics held during health fair and community events, and we have conducted no cost memory screenings in our office on Montauk Avenue in New London as well.  Diane Palmer, RN, and Sarah Ballard, LPN, both Qualified Dementia Care Specialists, have administered the memory screenings.

We’ve often spoken with people who are eager to find out if they have any detectable memory loss, and have also met people who have said “I don’t want to know.”  Our memory screenings are not meant to diagnose individuals with a specific condition. Rather, they serve as an indicator if memory loss is detectable, the next step should be taken in regards to contacting your health care provider or meeting with a neurologist.  The sooner a treatment plan is created, the less stress this can place upon the individual, family members and ultimately caregivers as symptoms progress.

If you are interested in learning more about our free memory screenings, or if you are interested in learning more regarding memory loss research currently underway in New London, call (860)443-4567.
