Misplacing items, searching for the right words and forgetting names can be a normal consequence of aging. However, there are clear and scientific tests that can determine that a more serious problem with memory or cogitation is indicated. If you decide to take this self-assessment regarding memory loss and the results indicate a potential problem, you should contact your primary care physician or a neurologist with these results to take further tests. The results of this self-assessment should never be taken as a diagnosis, only an indicator of warranting further exploration. The Maine Lawyer Assistance Program can help you find a medical doctor or a neurologist to explore your concerns further. As with all of our services, inquiries remain 100% confidential.
