    Understanding Cognitive Evaluation

    What is Cognitive Evaluation?

    Cognitive evaluation is a screening method designed to help determine the influence of outside factors on how the brain processes information. 

    Importance of Cognitive Evaluation

    While aging is the most common factor in cognitive decline, cognitive health issues can occur at any age range and be triggered by a wide variety of factors. This makes cognitive evaluation a highly useful tool in screening and recognizing cognitive issues at an early stage, increasing the chances of early detection for mild cognitive impairment and allow us to determine the right medical referral to see the right specialist.

    Cognitive Evaluation and Brain Health

    How Cognitive Health Relates to Sound

    Several studies have shown that hearing loss significantly increases the risk of cognitive decline and developing dementia compared to individuals with normal hearing. This makes it the number 1 most modifiable risk factor. Many individuals with hearing issues withdraw from social interactions due to problems understanding others, isolating themselves. This lack of cognitive stimulation can increase these symptoms and lead to further cognitive decline.

    Signs You May Need a Cognitive Evaluation

    Recognizing the need for a cognitive evaluation can be crucial for early detection and effective treatment. Here are some signs that you may need a cognitive evaluation:

    • Memory Issues: Frequent forgetfulness, repeating questions, misplacing items
    • Difficulty with Daily Tasks: Managing finances, complex tasks, driving issues
    • Language Problems: Finding words, following conversations
    • Disorientation: Confusion about dates, seasons, or forgetting where you are or how you got there
    • Poor Decision-Making
    • Impaired Problem-Solving: Handling changes, planning and organizing

    Benefits of Cognitive Evaluation

    Detecting cognitive decline early on allows us to tailor possible treatment options early.
