Cognitive decline tests: finally stop worrying.

If you have worries about your thinking or memory as you age, it makes sense to get to the bottom of it. Many seniors needlessly worry that they have a serious problem like Alzheimer’s or dementia. They are concerned because of quite minor difficulties that are expected in aging adults.  Then they avoid getting cognitive decline tests because they fear what they will find. They wind up prolonging groundless worries.

So if you have concerns, let us know. It may make sense to schedule cognitive decline tests to look more carefully. If your assessment does find evidence of some impairment, then you can begin brain training and cognitive exercise for to improve your mental function as you age.

Either way, you are better off knowing.

When you are concerned about your thinking and memory with aging, you need a careful neuropsychological assessment to answer your questions. We will use many different cognitive decline tests to look carefully at:

  • intelligence
  • language
  • perceptual and visual-spatial abilities
  • speed of processing
  • memory
  • learning
  • attention
  • problem solving
  • conceptualization
  • planning and organization
  • mental flexibility
  • motor skills
  • academic abilities
  • emotional  and social functioning

One month after the testing is completed, you will meet with your neuropsychologist to review the assessment report. Our reports are written so that YOU understand. They are jargon free, written in no-nonsense everyday language. Although we pay careful attention to the test results, the these results will be integrated to give you a clear picture of your strengths and weaknesses.  Most important of all, you will receive clear, practical recommendations for improving or maintaining your memory and thinking as you age. A neuropsychological assessment at the NeuroDevelopment Center will be the first step on your path forward.
