The Importance of Early Assessment

There are between fifty and one hundred identifiable causes of dementia, some of which are reversible and can be treated effectively in primary care with early detection.

Having a Brain Health Assessment can enable your primary healthcare physician to identify the onset of certain conditions early so that reversible conditions can be addressed appropriately.

Reliance Medical Centers, in collaboration with the University of South Florida, is one of the only facilities in Polk County to offer a Brain Health Assessment in primary care.

Another benefit of having a Brain Health Assessment prior to the onset of symptoms is to establish a personalized baseline score that can be used for future comparison. Brain health is unique to each individual. While there are general benchmarks available, comparing personalized scores over time for a particular patient is the most effective way of identifying subtle changes or anomalies that may indicate the onset of a specific condition.

Primary care clinics commonly focus on only the physical and pharmaceutical aspects of a person’s healthcare. Specializing in primary care for seniors, having a Brain Health Assessment and Enrichment Program available to all patients significantly differentiates Reliance Medical Centers from other clinics. Most importantly, it provides both patients and the community with a truly holistic approach to helping seniors live happier, healthier lives.
Upon completion of the Brain Health Assessment, results will be provided to and discussed with patients. For Reliance Medicare patients, results will be shared with the patients’ primary care providers.
Recommendations for follow-up will be discussed and patients will be referred to appropriate programs within the Wellness Club Brain Builders Track.

The Reliance Medical Centers’ Brain Health Assessment strives to detect cognitive impairment at the earliest possible time when interventions are most likely to be effective. In addition, a Brain Health
Assessment will provide you with access to cognitive aging specialists, various wellness programs, and direct access to research programs such as the USF Preventing Alzhiemer’s with Cognitive Training (PACT)
clinical trial, among others.
