Understanding the risk factors for dementia and getting a timely cognitive assessment can help take preventive measures at an early stage. Samvedna offers memory assessments for persons experiencing cognitive difficulties. Memory assessments/ memory screenings are helpful in the early detection of dementia and are able to identify early signs of cognitive impairment. Assessment includes an interview with the family and assessing the patient with cognitive deficits using standardised tests.

It often takes years for the family to identify signs of impairment when the illness has progressed to a higher severity level. Early detection helps plan early intervention and better care for persons with dementia. These assessments are conducted by experienced mental health specialists and clinical psychologists. Care recommendations are given accordingly.
