In just 3 minutes, Mini-Cog© can help doctors and other professional care providers identify possible cognitive impairment in older patients.
This gives people who are starting to show signs of cognitive impairment a better chance for early diagnosis and care. This could make a big difference in their health and quality of life now and later on.
Mini-Cog© is simple to use and can help determine when more in-depth cognitive evaluation is needed.
It’s easy to include in regular wellness exams, primary care visits, other health care settings, and anywhere older adults go to find needed services, such as senior centers and community organizations.
Learning to give the Mini-Cog© takes less than 10 minutes—no special medical knowledge needed.
