Memory and Brain Health Test.......
« on: September 19, 2017, 03:16:46 AM »
Went to a community centre for a "brain health" and memory test for seniors.....administered by Baycrest.  A half hour or so test on a laptop.  BTW, some questions on mood today, and lately.

My test result - percentile - 1 out of a 100....I was shocked.


I can do the test again at home.  Below a certain score...they said to "see your doctor."

Mitigating factors (small)-
-hard to get used to laptop keyboard (I'm a fast typist)....hard to get used to "foreign" keyboards, like the desktop downstairs in my bldg
-can't remember the second reason!....boo hoo.

I know I didn't do well on matching faces and names part of the test......the only part of the test whereby they DIDN'T say if you did well or not

Not the end of the world, but I'm shocked....they handed out literature, but I don't want to read it yet.

I know I have trouble with names.....forgot "Baycrest" a few times....but I don't say the same thing over and over like proverbial elderly people do.
I'm 70.


Not the end of the world.
