About MCI

Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is a cognitive state that is between normal aging and early Alzheimer’s disease. It may involve problems with memory, language, thinking & judgment that are greater than normal age-related changes. These symptoms of early memory loss are often noticed by the individual, as well as family members or friends. At this point, the cause(s) of MCI are unknown. 

Are you or someone you love forgetting things more often?  Becoming increasingly overwhelmed when making decisions, following instructions, or planning a project?  Finding it more difficult to pay attention and becoming easily distracted? Forgetting appointments or social engagements?  If so, an evaluation for MCI may be indicated. 

Though not everyone with MCI will progress to Alzheimer’s disease (AD), recent evidence does indicate that those with MCI are at greater risk for subsequently developing AD.  Currently, there is no FDA approved treatment to alleviate MCI symptoms or to prevent progression to Alzheimer's disease.
