Topic: The Importance of Cognitive Screening for Seniors

Someone in the world develops dementia every 3 seconds. There are over 55 million people worldwide living with dementia in 2020. This number will almost double every 20 years, reaching 78 million in 2030 and 139 million in 2050.

Screen early and often to empower patients to make necessary lifestyle changes.

Merridith Gonzalez presents at Fiduciary Round TableSpeaker: Merridith Gonzalez, Cognivue

Merridith has always been a humanitarian at heart and knew she had a calling to help people, especially the elderly. She went to college to become a Physical Therapist and soon found she preferred to be outside the clinic walls where she was able to interact and educate more people. With her Community Health Science Degree, she has worked with individuals with cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and limb loss and defects.  

Realizing she could help families be better planned for the costs associated with chronic illness and injury, she acquired her insurance license specializing in long term care planning.   

This led to understanding the need for better awareness and support for families suffering with cognitive decline. She is the Regional Manager for Cognivue. Cognivue provides a digital assessment tool to identify mild cognitive impairment and empower patients to take action with early detection.

Additionally, she volunteers with Alzheimer’s Association. She is on the Executive Leadership Team for Los Angeles/Southland Chapter Walk.

She is excited to be making a difference in cognitive health and proud to say she has created a mission driven career for herself.
