Extract

Early diagnosis of dementia enables early intervention and gives people the opportunity to make choices and plan for their future. Such an early diagnosis requires accurate assessment. A clinical assessment in people with suspected dementia in a memory clinic setting should include a clinical interview of the patient and their next of kin, a physical and neurological examination, cognitive assessment with appropriate cognitive tests, blood investigations, ECG (electrocardiography), and brain imaging.
