Diagnose at Home: geriatric tests to measure brain functions that you can take from the comfort of your home
Today in North America, millions of individuals live with dementia – this number is increasing and is related to common causes including, vascular risk factors (high cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking) and Alzheimer’s disease. Being diagnosed with dementia can have significant impacts to both your health and quality of life.
Brain aging affects everyone differently. Throughout our lifetime our brain changes more than any other part of our body. For some, there is a gentle decline in brain function as we age, for others, mild cognitive impairment – but for too many people today it is a slippery slope that descends into dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. While medicine may offer no magic cure to cognitive decline (yet), there are steps we can take to improve our brain health as we age. It all begins with testing at an early stage.
Now you don’t have to guess - or go all the way to the clinic for a cognitive brain function test. You can order diagnostic neurologic screening tests here online – or a test to measure other aging factors – and take it easily in the privacy of your own home. You’ll get detailed results delivered to you confidentially by phone or email by a trusted medical professional, alerting you to any risk factors, such as mild cognitive impairment or signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Where cognitive decline or other imbalances are detected, our nurses are standing by to connect you to the right medical advice fast.
