Evaluations for dementia (e.g., for Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, dementia due to stroke, etc.) are conducted with individuals who are experiencing concerning levels of cognitive decline, including in memory functioning.

Individuals may also be experiencing concerns in other areas of cognitive functioning, including:

  • Attention
  • Language functioning (including word-finding and/or name-finding)
  • Visuospatial functioning (e.g., depth perception)
  • Executive functioning (e.g., organization, multitasking, managing complex tasks, etc.)
  • Motor skills (e.g., motor weakness, loss of motor control, etc.)
  • Adaptive functioning (e.g., completion of basic self-care tasks, meal preparation, financial management, etc.)
  • Changes in personality functioning (e.g., impulsivity, difficulties with emotional regulation, significant increases in anger, etc.)
  • Changes in mental health symptoms (e.g., depression, anxiety, etc.)

These evaluations are helpful in determining:

  • Whether significant impairment is present

  • The likely underlying cause of any such impairment

  • How treatment plans may be adjusted in response to such impairment
