Older people often fear an early form of Alzheimer’s disease. They notice that they have recently become unusually forgetful or absent-minded.
By that we do not mean normal forgetfulness, which may increase with advancing age and often has to be distinguished from a lack of concentration.
In a precautionary check, we ascertain whether or not this early form of Alzheimer’s disease can be discerned in these symptoms.
The check includes a neurological examination, an electroencephalogram and psychological test checks.
These check-up examinations help us to establish whether the patient is suffering from a brain power deficit that goes beyond the normal level for his/her age (see Alzheimer’s disease).
