=================================================== PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHvQAZwnttxiDiqE3Xpi-eA?sub_confirmation=1 =================================================== How to Test for Dementia Dementia is a common, very debilitating disease, and it can sometimes be difficult to diagnose. There is no surefire way to test it at home, and a doctor's visit is highly recommended if you suspect symptoms. A friend or family member can administer the Mini-Mental State Exam for a general idea of cognitive function, but a doctor can make best use of the results. Method 1 : Preparing for a Doctor's Visit 1.Make an appointment with a doctor. The other sections on this page contain tests which you can take at home. 2.Prepare your medical history. Some drugs, medical conditions, and family history (indicating genetic problems) can put you at higher risk of dementia. Others mimic some symptoms of dementia, such as memory loss 3.Take a physical exam. Since dementia can be caused by reduced blood flow to the brain, the physical checkup should include a blood pressure reading, taking your pulse, and a temperature measurement. 4.Take a cognitive exam. There are many types of mental exams used to test for dementia, some of which are included in this article. 5.Undergo lab tests if necessary. If your doctor does not request blood samples or other lab tests, you might want to ask about thyroid hormone tests and vitamin B12 tests 6.Ask about brain scans. If you are showing some symptoms but the cause is not clear, the doctor may recommend a brain scan to investigate possibilities besides dementia. CT scans, MRI scans, and EEG tests are the most common types of scans used to help diagnose dementia-like symptoms 7.Ask about genetic testing. Genetic testing is controversial, as even a gene linked to increased risk of dementia does not necessarily mean you will be affected. Method 2 : Taking a Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) 1.Understand that this cannot be used as the only method of diagnosis. The Alzheimer's Association does not recommend using home tests instead of a doctor's visit. 2.Understand how to take the test. The person who has possible dementia-like symptoms just needs to listen to instructions. 3.Test orientation to time (5 points). Ask the person suspected of dementia the following questions, one at a time, in order. Score one point for each correct answer. 4.Test orientation to place (5 points). Ask where the person is currently located, in five separate questions. 5.Test registration (3 points). Name three simple objects (for example, "table, car, house"), and ask the person to repeat them immediately after you. 6.Test attention (5 points). Spell the word WORLD ("W-O-R-L-D"). Then ask the test-taker to spell the word WORLD backwards. Score 5 points if he succeeds within 30 seconds, and 0 points if he does not. 7.est recall (3 points). Ask the person to repeat the three words you told him to memorize earlier. Score one point per word remembered. 8.Test language (2 points). Point to a pencil, and ask "What is this called?" Point to a wristwatch, and repeat the question. Score one point per correct answer. How to Test for Dementia.

This is a test for Dementia....the defintion is in the video....very simple only 4 questions and a bonus round...
A study involving nearly 27,000 older adults on five continents found that nearly 1 in 10 met criteria for pre-dementia based on a simple test that measures how fast people walk and whether they have cognitive complaints. People who tested positive for pre-dementia were twice as likely as others to develop dementia within 12 years. The study, led by scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and Montefiore Medical Center, was published online in Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
