JENSEN BEACH—Memory lapses can happen to anyone at any age. But persistent bouts of confusion may carry more serious health connotations.

To help individuals and their loved ones better understand what lies behind their frequent forgetfulness, the Visiting Nurse Association of Florida is providing free memory screenings for anyone exhibiting early signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia.

 “The signs may be subtle, or they may be overt, but caregivers and family members are often the first to notice that something’s not quite right,” says Jennifer Crow, VNA’s director of marketing and communications. “But as with any serious illness, early intervention is key. These screenings might make a real difference for someone in getting help much sooner than they would otherwise.”

STUART – The holidays are known for bringing tidings of comfort and joy, but they can also cause deep depression in those suffering from loneliness. Realizing how vulnerable seniors remained to loneliness—and its serious, even reportedly potentially fatal, effects—the Visiting Nurse Association of Florida recently founded the Silver Socialites. The Martin County-based program fosters and fascilitates healthy socialization among seniors with activities that get them out enjoying life and making friends. And that can prove a real lifesaver. At 3 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, the Silver Socialites will enjoy—courtesy of VNA of Florida—a live performance by the Rockettes. The world-renowned dancers known for their high kicks and couture costumes are a centerpiece in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach. VNA of Florida created the Silver Socialites after learning of a study by the National Institute of Aging where researchers discovered that loneliness exposed seniors to an “increased rate of death and functional decline.” The study found that seniors most vulnerable to loneliness faced a 59 percent greater risk of decline and a 45 percent greater risk of death. “The Silver Socialites program is one of the most important prevention measures we offer—plus, it’s just a lot of fun for everyone involved,” said Donald Crow, CEO of th
