Dementia Stages Can Be Detected and Gauged by the Mini Mental State Exam

Here’s a test for dementia stages.

These are at the bottom of that link:

Symptoms of Dementia and the Clock Test
Dementia Types and the Animal Test

 

These are widely used in medicine. I thought they would be a nice review for all.

  1. good info- thanks

  2. Hi David,

    It is so good to see you come on from time to time.

    I tried to name 14 animals in one minute, and I was scrambling for a name at 45 seconds, and all of a sudden I had three more before the time was up. It was as if I suddenly hit a road block, but before the time was up I thought of another animal family and named them. So, I guess I passed the animal test.

    My husband can’t draw anything resembling a clock. He did well five years ago, but not anymore.

    Thanks for your helping us gain more insight into dementia
    and the ways to test for it.

    Love a lot, and give Pam my best, too,
    Imogene

  3. What’s the difference between dementia and Alzheimers? what is the difference? I think my father may be suffering one of these? does anyone know the warning signs? thanks
