Dementia Screening

Neuropsychological Dementia Screening Assessments are conducted with seniors who are concerned about their cognitive functioning. These assessments can provide information about whether you are functioning at the expected level for your age, or whether you are showing cognitive weaknesses which may be associated with an emerging neurodegenerative disorder (e.g., Alzheimer's disease).


Neuropsychological Dementia Screening Assessments consist of: 

  • an interview with you and someone who knows you well (1 hour)

  • psychometric testing (2-3 hours)

  • a feedback session to discuss your results (1 hour)

  • a report with test results and interpretation

Cognitive tests examine: 

  • Memory 

  • Attention Training

  • Working Memory

  • Abstract Reasoning

  • Language

  • Perceptual Reasoning

  • Executive Functioning

  • An Estimate of Earlier Functioning

It is important to understand that these assessments are not diagnostic. We will compare your cognitive profile to the expected test performance for people your age and to known cognitive profiles associated with neurodegenerative disorders. Likely outcomes of the assessment are that:

1) your cognitive profile is consistent with what we would expect for someone your age and is consistent across domains.
This may help reduce your anxiety related to your cognitive abilities;

2) your cognitive profile is consistent with what would be expected in neurodegenerative disorders and may inform treatment decisions that you make with your neurologist;

3) your cognitive profile is inconclusive and a follow-up assessment may be recommended in 12-18 months to identify any patterns of cognitive decline over time.

We would be pleased to discuss your specific needs and whether this type of assessment would be appropriate for you. Please click here to contact us for a free telephone consultation.
