Neuropsychological Testing For Dementia

There is a belief that dementia is a disease unto itself, however, the truth is that it is a catch-all term that is associated with a group of different symptoms that typically involve a decline in memory and thinking skills. Dementia can have a profound effect on a person and their family.

Everyday tasks and activities become difficult to complete and a greater burden is placed on those who care for them. Neuropsychological testing for dementia is an effective way to test the cognitive functions of the brain and determine if changes are occurring.

Where to Find Neuropsychological Testing for Dementia

Here at Jurmaine Health, we are the leading experts in neuropsychology in Australia. We carry out our work in 4 different locations throughout Victoria and we even travel to those in rural areas when required to do so. Our ten years assessing and testing individuals gives us a comprehensive level of insight as well as professionalism in this field. We are fast, without compromising on quality and the reports that we create are clear, helping those that need to know what is going on to fully appreciate the extent of our findings.

Damage to brain cells leads to dementia, which makes it difficult for them to communicate with each other. As such, normal cognitive functioning is inhibited and thinking, behaviour and feelings can all be affected as a result.

Why Neuropsychological Testing For Dementia is Recommended as Soon as Possible

Many people worry that they are developing symptoms of dementia when they recognise a change to one of their normal functions. Anyone that believes their memory is starting to fade need not panic and assume that this is a sign of dementia since the significant impairment of two core mental functions are required before dementia is considered.

However, a neuropsychological assessment for dementia is a smart and effective way to move forward when the suspicion of impairment is recognised. Friends and family often bring the issue to light in the first instance, but in some cases, a person may recognise that they are no longer operating to the fullest of their capabilities. Regardless, since many dementias are progressive, it is important to see a specialist sooner rather than later, so that effective action can be taken. 

At Jurmaine Health, we have dealt with patients in the past whose cognitive functions were impaired and brain cells damaged as a result of factors that can be controlled, such as alcohol abuse. In some instances, the removal of such contributory factors can lead to an improvement. That said, assessing the complete situation with a brain health assessment is the best way to ensure that nothing is missed and the correct treatment is found as early as possible.

Testing involves an assessment of intellect, motor and sensory skills, mood and behaviour, learning and memory, language, attention and concentration, reasoning, problem-solving, decision making, as well as visual perception skills.

How Neuropsychological Assessments For Dementia Can Benefit the Individual

Here at Jurmaine Health, we believe that neuropsychological testing for dementia is a highly effective way to track changes in a patient that is presenting with symptoms. The first test will serve as a baseline against which future tests are compared. It is, therefore, possible to track changes in different parts of the brain over time where repeat testing is pursued.

The benefit of clinical testing is that it can help shape future behaviours and protect the individual from taking actions that might negatively impact them, or those that care for them. Medicine continues to make advances, and so with the benefit of key insights, our team can help you, your loved one, or your client to adjust and limit the impact that their symptoms have.
