Helping primary care to support people with dementia

Memory assessment services

Memory assessment services undertake a more detailed assessment of memory and other thinking processes.

This consists of a range of ‘pen and paper’ type or equivalent computer-based tests and questions that will look at things like memory, verbal and non-verbal abilities.

These tests can be helpful in deciding the type of problem a person may have, particularly in the early stages.

The assessment can be used as a baseline to measure any changes over time that can also help with making a diagnosis.
