Neuropsychological assessment and treatment helps the patient and family understand the functional implications of a diagnosis, promoting recovery and acceptance.  Senile dementia, stroke and other causes of brain dysfunction may become physically and emotionally debilitating to both the patient and their loved ones.  The neuropsychological assessment delves into the patient’s capabilities and potential for recovery; assisting both the patient and family in coping with the changes through behavioral and medical recommendations.
