Have You Ever Thought…
1. How is my mind/brain functioning now?
Obtaining a baseline of cognitive functioning can tell you how your brain is functioning now.
The results can be used for future comparison.
A baseline can help identify early signs of trouble or decline in cognitive functioning.
Early treatment may be initiated when it may matter most.
2. Is my memory normal for my age?
Memory changes occur as we age.
Some memory problems are reversible, so it’s important to know why you are having problems.
Memory problems may be due to issues with mood, medications, sleep, or several other factors that are likely controllable, but first need to be identified.
Neuropsychological assessment can identify abnormal memory functioning and diagnosis the reason for memory decline.
3. Do I have dementia or Alzheimer’s disease?
A neuropsychological exam is the most sensitive diagnostic tool to answer this question.
Treatment works best when started early, so early diagnosis is important.
4. I’m anxious about my memory…should I be?
Memory or other cognitive changes can be worrisome.
You might think your memory problems are the beginnings of dementia.
A neuropsychological exam can alleviate anxiety by providing facts about your functioning.
A neuropsychological exam can reassure many that their cognitive changes are normal for their age and that there is no sign of dementia.
