Quiz: Is Your Memory Slipping?

Category: Health and Wellness Issues

June 17, 2014 — The Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University is making available a free diagnostic test, SAGE, to help assess cognitive, thinking, and memory impairments. It is a simple exam you can give yourself in just a few minutes.

Although it might be scary to realize that perhaps you might be prone to
the possibility of Alzheimers or other form of dementia, the good news would be that the earlier the diagnosis the better the chance of slowing down the disease.

The test usually takes less than 15 minutes. After you take it the idea is to give it to your doctor for him or her to evaluate. That way they have a baseline to evaluate against as time goes on. Your editor and his better half took it and it was kind of fun!

Here is the link to the The Self-Administered Gerocognitive Exam and more information about it. The page has a link to help guide physicians on it.
