The Alzheimer's Association has released new recommendations in Alzheimer's and Dementia for detecting cognitive impairment during Medicare Annual Wellness visits. Primary care physicians have not received any comprehensive guidance on how to screen for cognitive diseases. There are a 5 million Americans with Alzheimer's Dementia but only half have been diagnosed. The guidelines will help primary care physicians detect dementia earlier, allow for earlier intervention and management that will improve these patients and their families' lives. These patients often end up in nursing homes and dependent on total care being provided for them at great cost to the patients' families and society.
