Is it "typical" memory decline or something more? Reduce unnecessary referrals with this quick and easy memory screener

Declining memory function is one of the most common complaints among individuals as they age, and it can be difficult for practitioners and medical professionals to determine whether it's due to cognitive impairment or developmentally normative declines in memory. The Everyday Memory Survey (EMS) allows practitioners and medical professions to screen for individual memory related behaviors in daily life to determine if further testing or a referral is needed.

The EMS is a set of questionnaires designed to assess everyday memory in adults. Examples of everyday memory include remembering names, keeping track of daily plans, and accurately recalling medication regimens.


  • Provides a quick, reliable, and valid way to ecologically monitor, manage, and treat patients with known or potential memory impairment.
  • Brief enough to use in many different settings, including primary care clinics, rehabilitation centers, residential care facilities, and private practice.
  • Can help eliminate unnecessary referrals for comprehensive memory testing by screening out those with typical memory decline.


  • Consists of Self-Report and Observer rating forms, each with 25 items and requires ~10 minutes to complete.
  • Can be administered using a computer or tablet via Q-global. It can be administered in a traditional paper-based format upon request.
