What is a Memory Health Check Up?

It’s an science-based memory check up for adults with the goal to screen and reduce your personal memory health lifestyle and environmental threats. This check up is completed under the guidance and direction of health professionals trained in the Norris Memory Health Program.

We are on a mission to see that no adult Australian should suffer from avoidable memory loss and the Memory Health Check Up goes to the heart of this. 

Get assessed, take action, reduce your risks – it’s that simple.

The Memory Health Check Up

  • Gives you a snapshot of your memory health
  • Zeros in on your lifestyle and environmental risks and other risks
  • Prescribes the actions to reduce your personal risks for memory loss.

A memory health check up is like getting the car serviced each year.

Early detection and maintenance is less expensive than waiting for things to break.

The cost of memory loss is expensive when you consider the specialist consultations, care costs, and the personal quality-of-life costs to you and your family. Not only that, memory loss is a life threatening event which can rob people of their purpose, meaning, independence and dignity.
