Free Services Especially For San Fernando Valley Residents

LOS ANGELES – Imagine that you or someone you love is having memory problems. Are they experiencing changes in personality or behavior? Is it normal aging, or is it something more? How can you tell?

The Alzheimer's Association can answer your questions and get you the help you need with free, confidential services. Currently the Alzheimer's Association regional service center in Northridge is partnering with Olive View Medical Center to provide complimentary memory assessment and screening, through June 30, for the uninsured as well as those covered by Medicare and Medi-Cal. Assistance is available in English and in Spanish, by calling Aurora Morales at (818) 830-4738.

Latino families are especially affected by Alzheimer's disease, and they are less likely to get the help they need. Families are encouraged to call for assistance. In addition, the Alzheimer's Association has a toll-free Helpline that operates 24/7, every day of the year at (800) 272-3900. The Helpline is available to anyone, of any age or background, who has a question or concern about Alzheimer's disease or dementia.
