Sorry, I have been watching her all day and she had this great idea and it was just too good not to share:

It is the Animal Fluency Test that doctors run to test how we are doing cognitively.

She says every 6 months to film yourself for 30 seconds naming every animal you can think of. She said that the baseline number you get, in normal aging, should never change.

She said with the video on your phone, carry it like you do your med list. Because when we go to hospitals, they just get a snapshot...whereas if we have the video, we or our caregiver can say, this is what he or she was like 2 months ago.
