As we reach middle and later adulthood, it is common to wonder about cognitive health and question their memory and other thinking abilities. The Cognitive Health & Memory Center focuses on the needs of adults in middle age and above who:
- Are questioning if their memory or other cognitive/thinking abilities are changing.
- Have a family history of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
- Have chronic illnesses (e.g., diabetes or sleep apnea) and want to understand the impact on their cognitive abilities.
- Have received a diagnosis related to memory (e.g., mild cognitive impairment).
- Have no known risk factors and no previous evaluations and would like to know their abilities prior to entering later adulthood.
Cognitive and Memory assessment can provide answers and guidance for these questions, as well as an accurate picture of your strengths and weaknesses and tailored recommendations for what you can do to actively participate in your own cognitive health.
Cognitive & Memory Center Services
Baseline Cognitive Testing is appropriate for individuals (ages 45 and above) with known risks (e.g., sleep apnea, hypertension, or lupus) or a family history of risk factors for dementia including, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and vascular or other dementias. Results will provide a comprehensive description of current cognitive functioning, risk factors, and detailed recommendations to remediate weaknesses and support optimal brain health.
A Cognitive Screener is appropriate for individuals (ages 60 and above) who are interested in an overview of their current cognitive abilities with or without risk factors for memory impairment. This brief assessment provides clarification regarding current cognitive functioning.
Dementia Specific Battery is appropriate for individuals with diagnosed mild cognitive impairment, Parkinson’s disease, suspected Alzheimer’s disease, or other conditions associated with dementia. This battery provides information about the current status in the areas of cognition typically impacted by dementia or neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., attention, memory, problem-solving, or language abilities). Results will provide a snapshot of current functioning, potential needs, and can serve as a baseline for any future changes in functioning.
Full Cognitive Evaluation is appropriate for older individuals (aged 65 and above) with no prior evaluations and seeking a comprehensive assessment as a baseline measure for potential future changes. The outcome of this assessment is a comprehensive description of your current cognitive abilities, risk factors and detailed recommendations for remediating weaknesses and supporting optimal brain health.
