BTW, a score of 12 would indicate dementia. I am sure it is something you already knew, since it is a fairly low score.

I had to look it up. It is the St Louis University Mental Status exam. It can be downloaded online if you want to see the question. It is a brief exam to look at the cognitive abilities of the person taking it. My mother's doctor has asked her many of the questions on it.
