What Is Memory Screening?

 

A memory screening is a simple and safe evaluation tool that checks memory and other thinking skills. It can indicate whether an additional check up by a qualified healthcare professional is needed.

 

  • Various types of qualified healthcare professionals provide memory screenings, including social workers, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, psychologists and physicians.

 

  • The face-to-face screening takes place in a private setting; only the individual being tested and the screener are present.

 

  • A screening consists of a series of questions and/or tasks designed to test memory, language skills, thinking ability, and other intellectual functions.

 

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