Taking this test IS NOT THE SAME AS SEEING YOUR DOCTOR. Please see your doctor to seek a professional diagnosis…doctors can find and give answers.
However, watching this initial type Alzheimer test has been known to reduce fears of talking to a doctor.
Just like results from a yearly physical exam, a test for Alzheimer’s informs doctors of the status of a patient’s health.
This is a clip from a documentary from David Hoffman, made in support of nurses and nurse practitioners.
It won’t hurt…in this video, a nurse practitioner helps her patient learn if he might be beginning to have memory loss…these are the type of questions some medical professionals ask to discover a patient’s status with respect to memory loss.
From the results the doctors can determine what other tests are needed to confirm a diagnosis. Discovering ‘what is going on’ is a process that takes time. Many times, this is how it begins.

Your answers to any of the questions can only be evaluated by a qualified medical professional.
