    Free Brain Checks

    The Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of La Crosse County is holding monthly screening dates at various locations throughout the county in an effort to raise brain health awareness and early detection of Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias. A brain check-up is a wellness tool that helps identify possible changes in cognition.

    Brain check-ups are:

    • For people who are concerned about their cognition or concerned about symptoms they are experiencing.
    • Not a diagnostic test, but rather a tool that allows for conversation and planning if something is detected.
    • Not intended for people currently under medical care related to their memory loss/diagnosis.

    Free Brain Check appointments are from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following dates:

    • May 8 - Holmen Public Library
    • August 14 - Bangor Library (from 12pm to 4:30pm)
    • September 11 - Onalaska Library

    Call ADRC to schedule your appointment: 608-785-5700
