SOCARE Memory Loss Assessments and Evaluations
Each SOCARE assessment is tailored to the individual. To ensure the accuracy of the assessment, it is helpful if the patient’s family participates in the process, providing background information as needed.
SOCARE assessments involve five to six visits with a team that specializes in evaluating and caring for seniors. The team may include a neuropsychologist, geriatrician, neurologist, and social worker.
At the first visit, we perform an evaluation that typically includes:
- Medical history, including review of outside records
- Comprehensive medical, neurological and behavioral examination
- Assessment of social needs
- Review of diagnostic laboratory tests
- Discussion of all findings and recommendations for future healthy care treatment
At the end of your first appointment, you'll receive information about scheduling your other visits, which may include a visit to a neurologist or psychiatrist, detailed psychometric testing, or additional labwork or imaging
Last Visit and Follow-Up Care
The last appointment with SOCARE is the "family conference." At this visit, we may suggest follow-up care with a neurologist, neuropsychologist, or a geriatrician. SOCARE does not arrange follow-up care, but we do provide contact information.
