What Conditions Can Be Evaluated?
WHAT ARE THE MOST FREQUENTLY REFERRED CLINICAL CONDITIONS TO NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING?
1. Older adults who are concerned about their memory or declining cognitive abilities
2. Older adults diagnosed with dementia who want to know how poorly or how well they are functioning across different cognitive domains.
3. Older adults whose families want more objective evidence to help them know how much care their loved one needs based on their abilities.
4. Older adults who are diagnosed with Parkinson’s, Huntington’s disease, or Multiple Sclerosis, who want to find out how the diseases are affecting cognitive abilities
5. Older adults who have had a stroke and want to know which areas of their cognitive abilities are most affected and what is preserved
6. Patients who have had a TBI (traumatic brain injury) from a fall or accident (for now just those on medicare) and want to know if they suffered damage to their cognitive abilities as a result.
7. Patients who we tested who want a follow up a year or two later to see if their cognitive functioning is declining or remains the same compared to previous testing.
