Understanding Cognitive Screening
Cognitive screening plays a pivotal role in identifying potential cognitive impairments and changes in cognitive function that could impact daily life, including hearing. Understanding how your brain processes information helps us create a truly customized treatment plan for your unique hearing needs. Cognitive screening is not just for patients of a certain age. It’s true that as we age, it becomes increasingly important to monitor cognitive health. Doing so ensures early detection and intervention for conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, and other cognitive disorders. Effective cognitive screening empowers individuals, families, and healthcare professionals to make informed decisions about cognitive health management and treatment. We recommend routine cognitive screenings for all our patients as this allows us to create a truly customized treatment plan that is unique to you.
We conduct our cognitive screenings utilizing Cognivue Thrive, the only FDA approved cognitive screening device on the market. Cognivue is a leading innovator in cognitive screening technology. Their cutting-edge solutions utilize patented technology to objectively measure cognitive function.
