Are you concerned about your memory or the memory of a loved one?  There is a five minute exam available to download through Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center, which may help you if you are concerned.  The Self-Administered Gerocognitive Exam (SAGE) is designed to detect early signs of cognitive, memory or thinking impairments. It evaluates your thinking abilities and helps physicians to know how well your brain is working.

I think this is very interesting and plan to learn more about it.  It is important to note that this test must be self-administered.  If you have concerns about memory loss, consider taking the test and making an appointment with your primary doctor.

    I’m a huge fan of the SAGE test. I’m in an Alzheimer’s awareness club at my university and we handed out free copies of the test at our recent involvement fair. We’ve also hosted Dr. Scharre, the creator of SAGE and a member of my university’s faculty, to speak at one of our meetings about his research. It’s such an easy way to aid in the early diagnosis of dementia. Thanks for posting!
