Up to 1000 patients, with or without diagnosed cognitive disorders, are asked to participate by providing the investigators with blood, urine and saliva specimens to be stored in a Bio Bank for future research. Patients will be asked to participate on a yearly basis for up to 5 to 10 years by providing the investigators with the above-mentioned specimens, and also having a physical exam and having some cognitive testing performed at the initial visit and yearly visits.
Examples of the types of research are: new methods for improving the diagnosis and treatment of age-related cognitive disorders, new areas of biology, new areas of biotechnology, and possibly genetic research. If you do not want your specimens used for any specific type of research, you may specify that on the consent form.

Patients in this cohort with be diagnosed with mild to moderate cognitive impairment, Alzheimers disease, Dementia, or any other form of cognitive impairment.
Patients in this cohort will be normal healthy adults over the age of 60 years that have no cognitive impairment.
- Tissue bank of biological specimens [ Time Frame: 5-10 years ]To establish a tissue bank of blood, urine and saliva from cognitively normal and cognitively impaired individuals 60 years or older to be used for the purpose of conducting research addressing: etiology, mechanism, diagnosis, and treatment of age-related cognitive disorders.
