Quick Screening for Memory Loss

Introduction

Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, especially in their earliest stages, are difficult to distinguish from mild memory impairment that typically comes with aging. This Quick Screening for Memory Loss (QSML) will compare your score and ranking with suggested norms for your age group as well as suggested rankings from other age groups. You will be able to identify your own memory baseline and monitor changes from year to year. 

 

David A. Oas, PhD would like to see primary care physicians include an Alzheimer screening using the QSML in their annual physical exams of seniors. However, early onset Alzheimer's disease, as well as normal memory decline, may begin as early as fifty years of age. Those of you who fear your capacity for new learning is failing may be too embarrassed to tell others.  The QSML, along with other warning signs (see below), will help you share concerns with your family and friends so that all can participate in decision making about your healthcare needs.
