Is my memory loss normal?

Memory loss is a natural part of aging.  Many adults experience it in some form as they get older.  However, it may be challenging to recognize the difference between “normal” memory loss and something more serious that may require a visit to the doctor.  That’s where Cogniciti’s brain health assessment can help.

Partially funded by the Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CC-ABHI), Cogniciti is an online cognition assessment tool.  This resource can help adults determine whether their symptoms of memory loss should be examined further via a visit to their doctor. By doing so, this will allow those persons to potentially benefit from early assessment, diagnosis and treatment of their medical condition.  Cogniciti can also help adults find piece-of-mind in learning that their memory loss is normal, and not a serious form of cognitive decline such as Alzheimer’s disease.  To date, over 45,000 people have visited to take the online assessment and learn about their personal memory loss. 

Continued improvements over the next year will extend Cogniciti’s market reach. A tablet-friendly version will soon be made available.  Moreover, Cogniciti will extend the age range for participants so as to make the test available to a greater portion of the population. By extending the market reach, Cogniciti will continue to help adults recognize cognitive decline earlier than ever before.  This will allow people to either gain piece-of-mind that their memory decline is normal, or to seek treatment if the on-line assessment results indicate that their symptoms warrant a trip to the doctor’s office.
