Cognitive Screening assessments

When you notice a decline in a patient or family member’s cognitive abilities, it’s important to determine the best way to help them. Our cognitive screening services give you the information you need to make the best choices. We’ll help you understand if someone is suffering from memory loss, having trouble making decisions, or are suffering from other cognitive issues that may keep them from living comfortably.

The information you’ll receive from a cognitive screening will empower you to make informed decisions about your loved one’s or patient’s care. The knowledge you’ll gain can help you decide how to help your loved one continue to live safely at home, or whether additional care may be required. These screenings are also a useful tool for Directors of Care who need to determine which services are best suited for their clients

Our Process for Cognitive Screening Assessments

Our process begins by meeting in an environment where the client feels comfortable. We’ll spend some time getting to know a client, both personally and through their medical background. Once we have a clearer picture of their unique needs, we will conduct a series of tests to evaluate a variety of variables, including:

  • Their ability to make medical and financial decisions
  • Their ability to process information and solve problem
  • Their capacity to live safely at home
  • Whether memory impairment is present, and at what level

These tests can take several hours to complete, but are designed to be engaging and interesting. After the test, we will supply you with a written report that includes the results of our evaluations and any recommendations we have for additional care.

We’re Here to Support You and Your Loved Ones

We understand that determining the extent of your loved one’s or client’s cognitive function is stressful, both for you and for the clients themselves. Therefore, we make every effort to make sure our assessments are conducted in a calm, friendly, compassionate, and caring way. We’ll work with you to create an environment that is comfortable for the client, including coming to your home or facility. Our goal is to make each assessment a positive experience, both during the screening itself and afterwards through providing actionable recommendations that lead to a better quality of life.
