It's time to think about you.
As your cognitive abilities change, it can be challenging to navigate the world around you. The new online MOCA screening tool allows you to take a cognitive assessment by a clinician from the comfort of your own home.
What is the MOCA?
MOCA testing is the most accurate and convenient way to screen for cognitive impairment. MOCA testing is used by thousands of people every day to identify areas of cognitive impairment for individuals with a traumatic brain injury, stroke, or dementia.
MOCA tests are highly validated and can be completed in under 20 minutes.
The test includes 7 domains that screen for problems related to executive functioning, visuospatial abilities, short-term memory, attention, concentration, language comprehension, and orientation. The test is administered and analyzed by a certified instructor, who will then assist with recommendations based on your results.
The test is administered by a certified instructor through an online platform, making it convenient and accessible no matter where you are in the world. It’s also a great way to keep track of how your cognitive abilities are changing over time so that you can identify patterns and take action accordingly.
MOCA testing is currently offered over the phone or via videoconferencing.
How does it work?
The test is given to the patient while the administrator provides simple instructions to proceed with the assessment. The test covers the 7 domains mentioned above for cognition. The certified instructor then gives a score based on the assessment. The score may represent mild, moderate, or severe cognitive impairment.
The administrator can then make recommendations based on the score for the individual needs of each patient.
