This study aims to evaluate a newly developed measure of memory for clinicians to use.

What is this study about?

This project is looking to validate a newly developed measure of memory and daily functioning. The measures we currently use to measure memory and language all have drawbacks and limitations – some are too long, some are too short, some just concentrate on one aspect of memory and some can be difficult to complete. We are looking at developing a new measure that combines questions about memory, orientation, language and writing ability with questions around day to day function. We are looking for both people with memory problems, and people who have experienced no memory problems to take part.

Who can take part?

Anyone over the age of 50.

What is involved?

You will be visited at home or in clinic and asked to complete two short memory tests (each taking around 20 minutes). One will be the newly developed memory test and the other one that is currently used by clinicians. This is so we can compare scores between the two.
