Do you have a question?

The simplest test for mental ability is the mini mental states test, which is commonly available. Broadly speaking, it is a straight forward test which starts with orientation and leads to tests of short term memory, language and spatial awareness. It is a simple test with reliable results. Scores of the low 20’s or below are a good sign that there is a problem.
