Who Should be Screened

Anyone concerned about memory loss or experiencing warning signs of dementia; whose family and friends have noticed changes in them; or who believe they are at risk due to a family history of Alzheimer's disease or a related illness.

Benchmark screenings also are appropriate for anyone who does not have a concern right now, but who wants to receive a memory baseline for future comparisons.

These questions might help you decide if you should be screened. If you answer "yes" to any of them, you might benefit from a memory screening:

  • Am I becoming more forgetful?
  • Do I have trouble concentrating?
  • Do I have difficulty performing familiar tasks?
  • Do I have trouble recalling words or names in conversation?
  • Do I sometimes forget where I am or where I am going?
  • Have family or friends told me I am repeating questions or saying the same thing repeatedly?
  • Am I misplacing things more often?
  • Have I become lost when walking or driving?
  • Have my family or friends noticed changes in my mood, behavior, personality, or desire to do things?

Note: A memory screening is not used to diagnose any particular illness and does not replace consultation with a qualified physician or other health care professional.
