Medical experts and health organizations support early dementia screening in the elderly to raise diagnosis rates so more patients can access tailored care programs to help improve their quality of life. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force may update a 2003 guidance that did not advocate for or against screening, the Affordable Care Act will enable Medicare to include cognitive impairment in wellness visits and the Alzheimer's Association offers guidelines to help physicians evaluate cognition during office visits.
