UNDATED (WIFR) -- Instead of guessing for years, researchers say a short test could spot signs of Alzheimer’s disease early.

The four-page test measures skills like problem-solving and memory. It can be taken at home or at the doctor’s office in under fifteen minutes. Studies show it can detect eighty percent of people with mild memory issues. Researchers say people who take the test should talk to their doctors before interpreting results.
