Brain Care Screening

Brain Care Screening Have you ever wondered if forgetting where you put your car keys was, well, just forgetting where you put your car keys, or perhaps a sign of something else going on with your brain that you should be concerned about? This is a question I am sure most of us ask ourselves from time to time, and not surprisingly, more frequently as we get older given that dementia is most common in people over 65.
There are between fifty and one hundred identifiable causes of dementia, some of which are reversible and can be treated effectively in primary care. That being the case, screening your brain health before symptoms become apparent can enable your primary healthcare physician to identify the onset of certain conditions early on so that reversible conditions can be addressed appropriately, or therapeutic actions can be taken. However, this is not the primary reason for
Dr. Bush’s advice. One of the key benefits of having a Brain Care Screening sooner rather than later is to establish a personalized baseline score on the tests carried out for future reference. Brain health is a very personal phenomenon. While there are general benchmarks, comparing personalized scores over time for a particular patient is the most effective way of being able to identify subtle changes or anomalies that may indicate the onset of a specific condition. After all, it’s always better to prevent a disease than have to cure one if the opportunity arises.
Brain Care Screening at Reliance Medical Centers is designed to provide patients and health care providers with information that will facilitate the detection and treatment of underlying issues, for example, disturbed sleep, that may impact brain health and manifest as cognitive symptoms, such as memory impairment. The Brain Care Screening is comprised of tools that screen for depression, global cognitive function, hearing, and sleep hygiene. Patients are given the opportunity to learn more about brain health research and participate in evidence-based activities offered through the Wellness Club that are specifically designed to help maintain and promote overall health.
Brain Care Screening, together with the provision of Enrichment Programs through the Wellness Club, are ground-breaking additions to Reliance Medical Centers. Primary care clinics commonly focus on only the physical and pharmaceutical aspects of a person’s healthcare. Specializing in primary care for seniors, having Brain Care Screening and Enrichment programs available to all patients significantly differentiates Reliance Medical Centers from other clinics. Most importantly, it provides both patients and the community with a truly holistic approach to helping older adults live happier, healthier lives.

Two years ago this very month I found myself in what was seemingly a perpetual series of events that turned our world upside down. It was one of the most difficult times of my life. In a very short span of a couple of weeks I found myself having been betrayed by people I love very much,;criticized, and even cast out. My family experienced the loss of a loved one. And I was without a ministry home – in between jobs. I needed a breakthrough. I needed the clouds to separate just for a moment so I could make it through the rainstorm of life. I was on the edge of chaos in my life and I needed to keep moving forward. I was faced with a choice: would I give up and stop pursuing God? Or would I press on? Truthfully... I wasn’t so sure. But I knew I had a choice. Looking back I’ve learned that there are four things we can do when needing a breakthrough. 1. Don’t have all the answers. It’s OK to not know why... to not know how... to not know when... God desires for our hearts to be open and honest – to realize that we may never have all the answers. Jesus said, “blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:3) God can much better fill an empty vessel. 2. Listen. Once we get to a place where we admit we don’t know it all, then we go looking and listening to the One Who does. “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12). The Bible is God’s resource for daily living. It can cut through all the garbage and give us the direction we need. 3. Write it down. When we listen and take heed to what God is saying, I recommend writing it down because I can almost guarantee that at some point, you’re going to question whether or not that really happened. Keep a journal of the times you choose to break through. If the Creator of the universe is willing to speak, I should be willing to take notes. 4. Do it. Now the hard part: move on. Whatever you choose to break through, then now get to it. Sitting around waiting for circumstances to be perfect will result in never doing anything because they’ll never be perfect. Get to it! These are the steps that worked for me to experience the breakthrough I longed for during that unbelievable tough time two years ago. I’m grateful today because I can now see the good and the “better” that God had for us on the other side of the tough times. No matter what you’re going through remember this: “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose... For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:28, 38-39) Christ Fellowship www.christfellowship.church 561-799-7600 Find a Location Near You Palm Beach Gardens Port St. Lucie Royal Palm Beach Boynton Beach West Palm Beach Jupiter Stuart Okeechobee Belle Glade Boca Raton Vero Beach Westlake
