Many times, Alzheimer’s disease is misdiagnosed because the symptoms mimic other ailments (i.e. Vitamin deficiency, Depression, Undiagnosed infection, Stroke, Thyroid disease). This symposium will provide practitioners with best practices on recognizing cognitive decline early during an office evaluation with the help of cognitive screening toolkits as well as using information from neuropsychological evaluations to clarify the nature of cognitive deficits, and equipping them with resources and supports to assist Alzheimer’s patients and their family members in care planning.
