So Dr. David Crews has developed Cognicheck-dot-com, a web site where people ages 45-to-86 can take a variety of scientifically-based memory tests.
You can then view and print your results and compare them to the normal range for other people your age.
The cost is $9.95, an amount Crews says covers his expenses and one that's significantly cheaper than a regular doctor's visit.
The idea is to not only help identify potential problems but also provide reassurance to people who might simply be getting a little forgetful.
