Dementia Testing

As you approach your senior years, concerns regarding cognitive functioning may emerge as does curiosity about how to optimize healthy cognitive functioning. To best determine what interventions are a good fit, a Neurocognitive Screening Exam can be helpful to the development of customized recommendations for memory and cognitive problems before they become more severe. This type of evaluation aids in monitoring your cognitive functioning as you age and can be repeated annually to track changes in thinking abilities.

The Neurocognitive Screening Exam is made to fit into your life’s busy schedule while still providing valuable actionable insight into your mental health. Because this evaluation is abbreviated relative to a full neuropsychological assessment battery, it is significantly more cost effective and can be quicker to access rather than an extended wait for an intensive evaluation. The examination is typically conducted remotely, but may be done in person in greater Houston, Texas. Data from neuropsychological testing, a clinical interview, evaluation of emotional health, and a review of records contribute to a diagnostic opinion and customized recommendations for managing changes in memory, etc. The process will conclude with a debrief session to discuss your broad neurocognitive strengths and weakness.

  • Are you nervous that recent changes in your memory could be a sign of dementia?
  • Are you unsure of whether your increased forgetfulness is normal for your age?
  • Have you considered a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation for your memory problems but were given a long wait time alongside a huge price tag?

For you

Identifying whether a change in concentration and memory is normal aging or a red flag for dementia is key for peace of mind and planning.

The Neurocognitive Screening Exam provides a client with a broad overview of their cognitive status and answers whether an increase in forgetfulness, new episodes of irritability or confusion, or difficulty concentrating rises to the level of a clinical concern. 

It informs an individual how their cognitive function compares to same-age peers and discerns if cognitive changes are associated with depression (pseudodementia) or the result of a neurocognitive disorder (i.e., dementia). Methods to adapt to cognitive changes and how to optimize healthy cognitive functioning are summarized with customized recommendations for memory and other mental health problems before they become more severe. This evaluation can be performed annually to monitor cognitive functioning as the client ages. 

  • Concerned about a senior’s decline in memory?
  • Is your loved one losing their keys for the 3rd time this week?
  • Are they forgetting what you told them just a few hours earlier?
  • Is your loved one resistant to seeking a cognitive evaluation?

WHAT TO EXPECT

Findings and Recommendations

The Neurocognitive Screening Exam primarily involves cognitive testing to screen for dementia. However, it typically doesn't specify the specific type of dementia a client may have. Note that this screening is not intended for individuals with severe memory deficits or major cognitive concerns resulting from traumatic brain injuries.


Conducted remotely via a HIPAA approved televideo platform, the exam begins with a 30-45 minute clinical interview during the initial evaluation session. This interview gathers crucial details from the client (and, if permitted, a family member) about cognitive concerns, medical and psychological history, education, and work background.

Process and Procedure

Following the interview, the client should expect to undergo approximately 45-60 minutes of psychological/neuropsychological testing. Once testing is completed, the data is evaluated, a comprehensive report is prepared, and a debrief session is scheduled to discuss findings.

Evaluation Process Details

Personality Disorder Consultation

  • You may find that your relationships are uniquely strained. While desperately trying to keep someone in your life, you also actively push them away. 
  • A sense of emptiness haunts you while your anger may sometimes become wildly unleashed, triggered by minor slights.
  • Or perhaps you have no interest in having close friends or remaining connected with your family. 
  • Do you crave doing things alone and could care less about what others think of you?
  • Do you find that you are super focused on winning and perfection? See yourself as more incredible than the feedback others give?

This consultation is typically sought out by those who question if they have Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and others personality traits that result in impairment.
