Cognitive Functioning Assessment

An Engaging and Scientifically-Validated Cognitive Assessment Platform

Cognitive Functioning Assessment

Improved cognitive performance has important effects on your everyday life. Whether you’re remembering where you parked your car, learning a new task at work, or trying to figure out your taxes, your brain health affects nearly every aspect of your life.

CRL offers Cognitive Assessments to Objectively Measure main Cognitive skills such as Sustained Attention, Response Inhibition, Speed of Information Processing, Cognitive Flexibility and Control, Multiple Simultaneous Attention, Working Memory, Category Formation and Pattern Recognition…

Why Measure Cognition?

“If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it,” goes an old business saying, and it applies to health too. We all have a subjective idea of how our brains are doing—some days we feel “off” or have “brain fog,” while other days we feel like we can take on the world. But how much better are we on the good days? And are lifestyle or health changes making a difference?

That’s where cognitive assessment comes in. By putting a number to these subjective feelings, we can discover what is causing the good days in order to have more of them.

At CRL, as part of your initial assessment, it is standard practice to objectively check up on areas such as memory, attention, reasoning, and verbal ability—all cognitive abilities you need to function optimally in everyday life. It is not a test; it is a quick checkup on how you are doing today, like a blood pressure cuff for your brain.

An Engaging and Scientifically-Validated Cognitive Assessment Platform

CRL uses a leading cognitive assessment platform to measure brain health quickly. We will offer these measures to assess, monitor, and manage core areas of cognition to ensure that your assessment and treatment plan is on the right track.

The assessment tasks have been validated by decades of scientific research. They are proven to measure the most critical aspects of cognition. Performance is directly linked with the areas of your brain that are active when you are at your sharpest. But more importantly, the tasks are fun, and only take 1.5 – 3 minutes each to complete. Now, not only will you feel better, but you can objectively track how your brain is responding to treatment.

Assessments can be completed at home; imagine how easy it is to complete the tasks in the comfort of your own home.

No, this is a medical facility and smoking is not permitted at all.

Do you treat trauma?

Yes, our staff are specially trained in trauma, grief/loss and attachment, we know very well the negative impact these can have on someone’s mental health which can then trigger alcohol/drug misuse and other negative behavioural health challenges.

Among our treatment approaches to trauma is EMDR therapy which is very effective in easing and treating PTSD.

What is outpatient care?

Outpatient care is less intensive than inpatient care. The patient will usually attend regular meetings with a consultant psychiatrist, counsellor, therapist or key-worker where they will be given similar treatments to those in an inpatient clinic. However, as the patient does not stay overnight, the cost of this care is less expensive.

Outpatient programmes consist of daily, weekly or monthly sessions. Because outpatient treatment requires less time in-attendance, the entire recovery programme generally lasts longer than inpatient care. While inpatient treatment typically lasts for a period of six to eight weeks, an outpatient programme can last many months.

Who is outpatient treatment suitable for?

Outpatient treatment is suitable for individuals who have been struggling with addiction but may benefit from a less intensive approach to recovery than inpatient care.

CRL staff are available to offer helpful advice and information on all types of addiction and the most suitable treatment options. If you would like a referral to a counsellor, therapist or consultant psychiatrist for outpatient treatment, call us today. We can also provide support and advice to the loved ones of those struggling with addiction, as well as information on the treatments we provide and how these can be accessed.

Our staff are compassionate and caring and will treat anything you discuss in the strictest of confidence. If you need advice on addiction, or simply need someone to talk to, please do not hesitate to call us.
