Adult Neuropsychological Evaluations

Older Adult Neuropsychological Evaluations

Our older adult/geriatric memory evaluation can assess a range of cognitive, social, and emotional functioning to assess potential causes for changes in memory or thinking abilities. Some of these conditions which may cause these changes can have an impact on your ability to make important legal, financial, or medical decisions, and can even cause changes in your personality. Our older adult/geriatric evaluations aim to provide a clear understanding of your current functioning and provide you with a care plan which allows time to make choices that will improve your quality of life, better access to treatments, and less anxiety about the unknown.

  • Complete intake questionnaire: incompletion will cause a delay in the scheduled appointment.

  • Bring any relevant medical records. If medical records are not readily available and wish to be requested, we will provide a “Release of Information” to request records from your care team.

  • If possible, plan on bringing a person who knows you well to provide additional information about your daily functioning.

  • Please eat before the appointment, bring snacks, or bring a packed lunch, as the evaluation lasts several hours.

  • Please take your regularly prescribed medications, as scheduled. We request that you avoid taking any attention-enhancing/stimulant medications, or sedating medications that cause drowsiness, such as pain killers or anti-anxiety, until after the evaluation.

  • Bring a current list of your medications and their dosages.

  • Bring your reading glasses or hearing aids.

  • Bring a valid photo ID and finalized payment.

How To Prepare For Testing

  • The initial portion: A neuropsychologist will provide an in-depth clinical interview, with you and a family member/close friend, to understand your past medical history, any changes in thinking, symptoms, and specific concerns which have affected your daily functioning. The interview can take up to 1 hour.

    • A neuropsychologist will decide on which tests are necessary based on the clinical interview. The tests may be administered by a qualified neuropsychology technician or psychometrist.

  • The testing portion: The testing process uses a variety of written and verbal tasks that are completed while seated. These tests can be paper-and-pencil and/or computerized. The administrator will provide instructions and guidance throughout the process.

    • The testing process can take about 3 to 7 hours in one day, depending on the reason for referral.

    • Frequent breaks and lunch breaks are allowed based on individual needs throughout the day. We request that you do not schedule other appointments on the day of your appointment unless discussed ahead of time with the scheduler.

  • After testing day: A follow-up feedback session is scheduled with the neuropsychologist to review the results and recommendations about 1 to 2 weeks after the initial testing appointment. A copy of the results and report are provided after the formal feedback session. The report may also be sent to any referring healthcare providers as requested. The feedback session may take approximately 1 hour.
