What is Mild Cognitive Impairment?
Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a condition in which an individual has mild, but measurable, changes in memory and/ or thinking abilities. These changes are noticeable to family and friends; however, are not generally severe enough to interfere with one’s activities of daily life. Individuals with MCI, especially MCI involving memory problems, are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia than people without MCI. However, MCI does not always lead to dementia. For some, MCI remains stable, for others MCI may be caused by another other factors. As such, it is important for individuals with concerns about their memory or thinking seek help from a qualified healthcare professional for evaluation, diagnosis and possible treatment.
