Mild Cognitive Impairment

Jun 16, 2022 | Blog

According to, Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is a middle stage between the occasional forgetfulness of normal aging and the serious cognitive decline of dementia.

Someone with mild cognitive impairment could experience these symptoms:

  •  Forgetting recent events or repeating the same question
  •  Forgetting important events like appointments or social events
  •  Being very easily distracted, losing their train of thought, or losing the thread of conversations, books, or movies
  •  Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by decision-making, planning, or understanding instructions
  •  Taking much longer than usual to find the right word for something
  •  Starting to have trouble finding their way around familiar places
  •  Becoming more impulsive or showing increasingly poor judgment
  •  Difficulty judging distances or navigating stairs
  •  Family and friends noticing any of these changes

Anxiety and depression may also play a part in mild cognitive impairment. For more information on this topic, click on the following link: Mild Cognitive Impairment
