Continues to be Midwest’s only senior living provider to offer Memory Training Centers of America services
NEENAH, Wis. (October 12, 2011) — CRL Senior Living Communities announces its third offering of free memory screenings in Waukesha. As the only senior living provider in the Midwest to offer the treatment and education services of Memory Training Centers of America (MTCA), CRL provides professional memory training sessions for individuals experiencing mild to moderate cognitive impairment. Sessions will be held at 3933 South Prairie Hill Lane, Greenfield, WI 53228 on October 19 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. and will be conducted by a licensed clinical psychologist with the goal of helping seniors with memory loss strengthen their ability to store and retrieve new information.
“For families coping with memory loss, this free screening can be an otherwise unknown opportunity to assist with cognitive/memory impairment and improve day-to-day living,” said Ari Weinberger, president and CEO of CRL. “We are proud to be partnering with MTCA to provide a program that not only helps diagnose and decelerate impairment, but also helps seniors guard against future memory loss by improving their ability to build a reserve.”
At the free screening events, individuals can take 10 minutes to determine their brain’s memory fitness. MTCA offers programs that utilize memory, attention and other cognitive strengthening exercises for anyone who wishes to maintain healthy cognitive functioning throughout their lifetime. Cognitive training sessions provided by MTCA are a service paid for by Medicare.
