WebMD - Senior Moment or Something Worse? Yes-No Test May Tell

 – February 3, 2012  –– 

When are “senior moments” just a normal part of healthy aging, and when are they a sign of something more serious such as Alzheimer’s disease? This is the million dollar question, and the Alzheimer’s Questionnaire, a set of 21 yes or no questions that can be answered by a loved one or caregiver, may help answer it."Everyone would like a simple, useful [mental] screen that could be used by primary care physicians,” says Dr. Sam Gandy from Mount Sinai School of Medicine. The new tool “appears to fulfill the essential criterion of convenience.”
