You are the nurse practitioner in a busy family practice. You are seeing a new patient today who is 70 years old; she is accompanied by her daughter. The PMH of the patient includes HTN, DM, Hyperlipidemia, TIA × 2, and Osteoarthritis of both knees, with multiple falls resulting in two diagnosed concussions. The daughter is concerned because she feels as if her mother’s memory isn’t what it used to be. She states that her mother sometimes misplaces things and forgets events as well as the names of people she has known for a long period of time.
- Please list and explain two tests for cognition that could be used to assess this patient’s memory in a primary care office.
- Please list three potential causes of memory loss in this patient.
