As new research continues to illuminate the relationship between hearing loss and dementia, we’ve invested in a new tool designed to screen for the early signs of cognitive decline. Cognivue is a sensitive, easy to use diagnostic tool designed to provide patients with cognition information they can bring to their healthcare provider.
Why Would You Want to be Tested By Cognivue?
Cognivue is a quick test lasting roughly five minutes or so, that screens:
- Memory performance
- Executive function
- Reaction time
- Processing speed
The Cognivue screening process will also test for a variety of other cognitive benchmarks, collecting data in order to provide you with a picture of your cognitive health. Cognivue is not designed to be the final word on your dementia risk; instead, the screening tool works as a kind of early warning system, bringing possible red flags to your attention as early as possible.
We treat our patients like our own family because we recognize that hearing well is important in all of your relationships!

Cognitive Tests Screen for Early Warning Signs of Dementia
The Cognivue diagnostic will provide you with a cognitive health result that is independent of your hearing score. Health professionals can use both your hearing results and your Cognivue results to paint a more accurate picture of your current cognitive health. Based on your scores, Cognivue will provide you with advice concerning lifestyle changes that aim to improve your overall cognition. The screening will also provide you with a report and data set that you can bring to your healthcare provider in order to better discuss next steps for managing your cognitive risks.
In this way, Cognivue provides hearing specialists with a screening tool that can help them accurately measure cognition and, in some cases, detect early signs of dementia. Because of the link between dementia and hearing loss, the people that hearing specialists see are likely to be disproportionately predisposed to dementia risk, making Cognivue an essential step in a hearing checkup.
