welcome to Healthcare Magic.
Dementia is a chronic illness. It develop slowly, due to that diagnosis is delayed in most of the cases. Before any test it is important to take detail history to know about problem, type of dementia, cause of dementia and to rule out other condition which can present as dementia like initial stage of depression
Test like MMSE (mini mental status examination
) is used by trained professionals to assess cognitive function of dementia. It is better to visit nearby psychiatrist
for diagnosis and management.
Wish you all the best.
