Cognitive Test May Identify Early Impairment

The other night on NBC Nightly News, I saw the following clip on a new at home test designed to help seniors keep track of mental sharpness. The "SAGE test" is free for download with answers posted so that seniors can check their scores and track their own progress. Researches think taking this test once per year will help track mental decline and give seniors information that can start a dialogue with their doctor. The video clip can be found here: http://video.msnbc.msn.com/nightly-news/54061054

The SAGE (Self-Administered Gerocognitive Exam) test can be downloaded from the Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center's website here: http://medicalcenter.osu.edu/patientcare/healthcare_services/alzheimers/sage-test/Pages/index.aspx
