Will Be Hosting
Free Memory & Cognitive Ability Evaluations
Dr. Susann Varano, a geriatric physician and former director of Yale’s Elder Horizons Program and Candlewood Valley
Rehabilitation Center will be holding free Memory & Cognitive Ability Screenings for community members.
Prior to the evaluation, a brief questionnaire is filled out by the participant or a caregiver. At the appointment the participant responds to a series of questions focusing on cognitive skills and memory. Caregivers can provide important added information. Each evaluation is approximately 20 minutes long.
Following the meeting, the evaluation team representatives convey their findings and provide guidance that often includes informational material, education and referrals. We are allied with many resources in the community that can help if support is needed.
