Hello @MatthewB
I think you mean neuropsychology testing. My OH has had that done several times and, yes, it takes about 2 hours.
Some of it is writing, but not all of it. A lot of it is talking - saying what things are and what you can see and some of it is drawing.
Do not worry about it

Hi @MatthewB
I hope the test goes well. It’s great that you’re good at fixing broken machines 😀 That’s very useful. Do they have any groups nearby where you could volunteer to use those skills? Here we have repair cafes where people take things that need fixing. You might be able to support other people running something similar??

Hello @MatthewB, I've had the neuropsychology testing several times now. As far as I recall I only had to write one sentence, so not a lot of writing, the rest is talking. 2 hours seems long but you take it at your pace and you can say if you feel tired. Try not to worry about it. The person who does the testing is experienced and is there to help you. I hope it goes well. Good luck!

Fingers crossed for you @MatthewB

I hope you don`t find the tests too difficult. I hope the person testing you will be able to tell you what kind of work you will be able to do.

NEuropsychologist testing was very helpful for me to understand myself a little bit better.. Nothing to be afraid of. It can also help family members a little..
And yes, repeat testing shows progression..

I'm have that long test up at the big city was to many trafics go so fast spooky but not so bad. I don't remember so much but not too riting just draw some pitures. Say story's too. Then went back 2 weeks and find the scores he want to talk my wife her own self and not me and that is not rite to me then some while can let me go into say some qwesttion and I ask can I go back to work now and he says so many things I don't get but my Lisa tell it means no more work a job ever. He tells it is 5 stage demensa making me a unsafe guy I'm saying to him was work on live circuts afore he is even born but he can't listen to me. I was not mean but I am just trying to get them understand ing I can do more then they think. I beed more quite cause my Lisa was cry and I'm not upsetting her for the world so i.am not fuss no more but that doctor is Rong but I don't know what to do now.

That is so sad for you @MatthewB I don’t know what to say to help

The doctor will have the final word and if by chance anything would go wrong you would not be covered by insurance.

It’s a very hard decision for you and I’m really sorry it`s come to this.

Its probably easiest to say that the tests show that you no longer have early dementia, but now have mid-stage dementia

I think there is a way to go before you die

I would agree with @canary The results probably mean that you are mid stage dementia now. Take care of yourself and your Lisa.
