The Neuropsychology Program is a clinical specialty service provided by both Rhode Island and The Miriam hospitals. The program offers neuropsychological evaluation of memory and other cognitive functions on both an inpatient and outpatient basis, and always in a supportive atmosphere. Results of the evaluation can assist with accurate diagnosis and lead to specific treatment recommendations.

When Can a Neuropsychology Program Help?

The neuropsychology program can help in a variety of times, including:

  • When it is unclear if someone’s memory problems are part of normal aging or early Alzheimer’s disease.
  • When family of someone with Alzheimer’s disease would like education about dementia, or recommendations for managing the patient’s behavior.
  • Shortly after a mild head injury (e.g., car accident), someone has difficulty returning to work because of problems with forgetfulness, concentration, impulse control, or an evaluation is needed for a pending lawsuit.
  • A stroke patient is having difficulty driving, balancing a checkbook, or remembering appointments, and the evaluation is needed to help determine the severity of the problem and to make recommendations for daily functioning.
  • An individual with a chronic medical illness is experiencing cognitive and emotional difficulties. Disability insurance may be an option, but an objective examination is required.
