Dementia Test

        Did you know that you can test yourself to see if your cognitive skills are slipping below average, which might signal early dementia? The Ohio State University has  developed a self-administered gerocognitive exam (SAGE) which is similar to the ones the medical profession employs when they diagnose patients with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.  Research underscores the importance of early detection since the new medications available today only help in the early stages of the disease.

       If you are interested in having a look at the exam,  which can be completed within 15 minutes, you can find a copy as well as the scoring instructions at:
