Purpose of Study 

The purpose of this study is to validate the English version of a new cognitive screening tool, the "Dépistage Cognitif de Québec" (DCQ).  The DCQ is a valid instrument that can be administered in less than 45 minutes and unlike other screening tools for dementia, it can provide more detailed information about memory and thinking skills.

Eligibility 

You may be able to participate if you are over 50 years of age and do not have any memory or thinking problems.
