Need practitioner who can administer MoCA

Postby beebo » Mon Feb 01, 2021 12:23 pm

Hello

Can MoCA be administered remotely? If so, can I use one of the practitioners in the Practitioner Reviews forum?

Thank you
Bebo

Apparently yes per this.

I'd contact several and ask if they do it.

This resource may also be of help finding a remote practitioner.

I am a retired Occupational Therapist who worked with geriatrics and we administered the MOCA for many years. Speech therapists also administered it. Recently they have required some the type of certification to administer it. You might be able to find an OR or PT who will do Telehealth. Home health Therapists and Outpatient centers might have someone available.I would guess most mds did not get the certification. Any questions feel free to pm me.

Oops I typed too fast and didn’t reread my message back. OT or Speech not OR and PT
