THINK FAST!

The research is clear! “Speed training” for improved processing speed cuts the long-term risk of dementia nearly in half.  At both 5-year and 10-year follow-ups, studies show that people who receive processing speed training continued to show measurable cognitive improvements, even without additional training. It not only helps improve speed of processing, but also helps to perform everyday tasks—such as handling finances and even driving—more easily and effectively.

Get Started with a Memory Screening

If you aren’t sure where to start once you have concerns about memory, schedule a confidential memory screening at CentraState.

A memory screening, like most routine health screenings, is a simple, non-invasive check-up that consists of a series of questions and tasks designed to gauge memory, language and thinking skills. It’s an important first step toward proper diagnosis and care.
