Are you concerned developing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia in the future? WPAPC offers a brief, yet comprehensive evaluation of cognitive functioning before you begin to notice cognitive changes or memory loss.
Why would I need a baseline neuropsychological assessment?
The assessment is used to establish a “baseline” or document a person’s skills at the onset or before cognitive problems arise. In this way, later changes can be measured very objectively.
Who is appropriate for a baseline assessment?
Individuals over age 45 who are concerned about developing dementia.
What happens during the evaluation?
You will complete about 90 minutes of pencil/paper measures of your thinking skills and a brief interview about your background.
What can I hope to get out of a baseline evaluation?
When you begin to notice cognitive changes, doctors are often limited by having no objective comparison. A baseline evaluation provides you with numbers against which you can compare later scores.
What is the cost of the evaluation?
The cost of the baseline evaluation is $900. We do not participate with insurance plans for baseline evaluations. You will have sole discretion in releasing your results.
