At ALMA Neuro SG, we specialize in understanding the unique challenges that come with aging, including memory loss, changes in thinking skills, speech difficulties, and the impacts of conditions like diabetes, stroke, Parkinson's, and cardiac events.
Comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations also aid in determining decision-making capacity and aid in identifying and diagnosing cognitive impairment that is often secondary to memory loss, Alzheimer's, other dementias, stroke, seizure, TBI, alcohol/drug use, UTI, cardiac events, and medical diagnoses (e.g., Parkinson's, autoimmune disorders, sleep disorders, hydrocephalus, etc.).
A Comprehensive Neuropsychological Evaluation is a crucial tool in identifying these changes and crafting a supportive path forward.

At ALMA Neuro, we understand the importance of assessing both cognitive abilities and practical driving skills when evaluating senior drivers.
That's why we offer a unique approach by combining two essential evaluations:
(1) a behind-the-wheel senior driving evaluation
(2) a cognitive driving assessment
By combining cognitive and behind-the-wheel assessments, we offer a comprehensive evaluation that provides a complete picture of an individual's driving abilities. Our goal is to promote safe and confident driving for seniors, ensuring their continued independence and well-being on the road.
Our comprehensive driving assessment ensures a thorough examination of the cognitive functions necessary for safe driving, including attention, memory, decision-making, and reaction time.
In addition to the cognitive evaluation, we go a step further by providing an on-site behind-the-wheel driving evaluation. This assessment is conducted by a certified driving school instructor authorized by the state of Florida.
By directly observing seniors in real driving situations, we gain valuable insights into their practical driving skills, such as lane control, turning, parking, and overall vehicle handling.

These evaluations are also used as pre-surgical psychological assessments of bariatric surgery candidates to identify contraindications for surgery and to gain insight into the individual's motivation, readiness, understanding, and emotionality that may impact their recovery, adjustment, and long-term lifestyle change.
Reoccurring nightmares are a common symptom of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and often involve recollections about, and/or emotions related to, a traumatic event that was experienced by an individual.
Imagery Rehearsal Therapy (IRT) for PTSD-Related Nightmares is a brief and evidence-based cognitive-behavioral treatment that aids in reducing the frequency and intensity of the reoccurring nightmares, and subsequently improves the quantity and quality of sleep for civilians, first responders, and veterans.
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) benefits both the employer and employee by offering a brief psychological assessment and a predetermined number of therapy sessions (typically 3-5) at no cost to the employee. The employer covers the cost of these services and pays the provider directly.
Companies who provide EAP have found increased employee satisfaction and decreased employee turnover and use of sick days.
Using an off-site company for EAP allows the employees to feel more confident that their confidentiality will be maintained and that the provider is less likely to be biased.
Due to the limited number of sessions offered with EAP, the focus of the sessions is typically assessment, diagnosis, insight-building, and solution-focused treatment. If long-term or intensive psychotherapy is needed, recommendations and referrals will be discussed.
