A memory screening, like most routine health screenings, is a simple, noninvasive check-up that consists of a series of questions and tasks designed to gauge memory, language and thinking skills.

Memory screenings are a significant first step toward detection of memory problems. Some memory problems can be readily treated, such as those caused by vitamin deficiencies or thyroid problems. Other memory problems may result from causes that are not currently reversible, such as Alzheimer’s disease.

It’s important to keep in mind that screenings are not a diagnosis. Individuals  who score below the normal threshold or who still have concerns about their memory are encouraged to follow up with their physician for a thorough evaluation.
