Understanding Mild Cognitive Impairment

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) affects approximately 15-20% of people age 65 or older, with a slight but noticeable decline in memory and thinking skills beyond what is expected with normal aging. 
 
MCI is not severe enough to be diagnosed as dementia.
 
Cognitive impairment can have many causes, and MCI is sometimes mistakenly diagnosed. For example, some medications can cause cognitive impairment, which could be resolved with a change in said medication.
 
Thus, people experiencing cognitive changes should seek help as soon as possible for diagnosis and possible treatment.
 
An MCI diagnosis will often lead many older adults and their loved ones to wonder what to expect and whether the condition is reversible.
