Cognitive Training to Combat Memory Loss

Memory loss is a common occurrence as we age. It becomes a problem, however, when it interferes with completing meaningful daily tasks in a safe manner. Many underlying conditions can cause memory loss and it is important that we figure out what the cause may be. While 70% of people over 84 years of age have some form of dementia, it can be very difficult to identify the early signs and symptoms of dementia and other cognitive conditions.  When you lose your ability to think clearly, your quality of life deteriorates, as well. That’s why it’s so important to catch early signs of cognitive loss and do everything possible to train our brain. Recognizing that you or your loved one may need a cognitive assessment is the first step in the right direction.

Here are some signs that you or a loved one may benefit from a cognitive assessment:

  • Orientation and memory deficits
  • Difficulty with problem solving and sequencing and/or judgement
  • Inability to identify and follow through with a task
  • Cannot recall medicines or recent hospitalizations / doctor visits

Cognitive Assessments can:

  • Provide a comprehensive evaluation of a patient’s cognitive ability
  • Identify cognitive strengths and deficits
  • Educate on strategies to compensate and improve functional independence
  • Improve cognitive health
  • Provide a comprehensive evaluation of a person’s cognitive ability (such as with the Botes Memory Method)
  • Educate on strategies to compensate and improve functional independence
