Onda d’Uro Association Offers Free Cognitive Screening for Elderly
As the population continues to age, the importance of cognitive screening in identifying early signs of cognitive decline has become increasingly evident. With conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia becoming more prevalent, early detection is key in providing timely interventions to improve patient prognosis and quality of life.
In an effort to promote awareness and early detection of neurodegenerative diseases, the Onda d’Uro association has organized free cognitive screening sessions to be held on 16 and 17 March at their headquarters in via Verdi, 40. The screening will consist of a brief evaluation of cognitive functions through a clinical interview and standardized neuropsychological tests, conducted by Dr. Valeria Piombino, a psychologist specialized in neuropsychology and PhD in neurological sciences.
According to the association, it is recommended for individuals, especially those over the age of 60 or at retirement age, to undergo regular cognitive screening. The goal is to highlight any early signs of cognitive decline and provide opportunities for timely interventions to prevent or delay the onset of neurodegenerative diseases.
Due to the limited number of slots available, interested individuals are required to reserve their spot in advance. Those wishing to participate can contact the association at 349.1829430 or send an email to [email protected].
The Onda d’Uro association has been a longstanding advocate for the culture of prevention and continues to play a vital role in promoting the importance of cognitive screening in an aging society. The free screening event is expected to be a valuable opportunity for the community to take charge of their cognitive health and well-being.
As the demand for cognitive screening continues to rise, initiatives like these serve as a reminder of the importance of early detection and intervention in addressing the challenges of an aging population.
