Warning Signs, Symptoms & More
Alzheimer’s is diagnosed through a complete
medical assessment. If you or a loved one have
concerns about memory loss or other symptoms
of Alzheimer’s or dementia, it is important to be
evaluated by a physician.
There is no single test that can show whether
a person has Alzheimer’s. While physicians
can almost always determine if a person has
dementia, it may be difficult to determine the
exact cause. Diagnosing Alzheimer’s requires
careful medical evaluation, including:
• A thorough medical history
• Mental status testing
• A physical and neurological exam
• Tests (such as blood tests and brain imaging)

Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s. But
drug and non-drug treatments may help with
both cognitive and behavioral symptoms.
