Eric Neblung, Ph.D. - Dementia Evaluation, Dementia Screening


 

Dementia Evaluation & Screening

   Screening for dementia is often helpful in determining competency and capacity, clarifying whether an individual requires supported placement (e.g., in an assisted living or skilled nursing facility), and in developing behavioral management and treatment goals.  There are several types of dementia (e.g., Alzheimer's dementia, vascular dementia, Parkinson's induced dementia, etc.) and identifying which disease process is at work may have significant implications for prognosis, management, and treatment planning.  Additionally, there are other disorders which may mimic the appearance of dementia (e.g., pseudodementia) and are often treatable.  A first and important step is often to rule these out.

   In my practice, a dementia screening and evaluation involves a clinical interview, collateral interview (e.g., with a spouse or other family member), the administration of neuropsychological tests and, occasionally, a review of records.  The testing typically takes place over several hours in one day, though on occasion more than one meeting may be indicated.  The fee varies on the specific referral question regarding dementia (e.g., screening, capacity determination, comprehensive evaluation, etc.) and includes feedback as well as a written report explaining the findings.  These are usually available within 10 business days from the date of assessment.  Appointments are often available within 14 business days.
