If you are concerned that you or a loved one may be experiencing cognitive issues, the SAGE test can act as a guide to help you assess the significance of the issue. As stated on the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Website, “the Self-Administered Gerocognitive Exam (SAGE) is designed to detect early signs of cognitive, memory or thinking impairments. It evaluates your thinking abilities and helps physicians to know how well your brain is working.” This test is easy to take in the comfort of your own home. There are four different SAGE forms available online but only one needs to be taken by the individual because the forms are all interchangeable. There is a link to download the SAGE test on the Ohio State University website: http://medicalcenter.osu.edu/patientcare/healthcare_services/alzheimers/sage-test/Pages/index.aspx. Once you agree to the terms of service, you are granted access to the SAGE which should then be printed and completed. It is advised that you bring the results of the SAGE test to your next doctor appointment so that a qualified medical professional can assess whether further evaluation is necessary. Taking the SAGE and consulting your physician may prevent further cognitive troubles. Wexner Medical Center urges, “There are many treatable causes of cognitive and thinking loss, and in some cases, medications or other treatments can be very effective-especially if provided when symptoms first begin.”
