Most persons with dementia remain undiagnosed by their primary care providers, and families often fail to recognize the significance of early cognitive symptoms. In response, there has been a growing interest in screenings for memory problems. The proposed answer is that screening for memory dysfunction, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias is important, but raises pragmatic, ethical as well as theoretical considerations that need to be addressed before general screening practices can be widely implemented.
