Mild Cognitive Impairment: The Facts

At Senior Living Residences we have over 25 years' experience working with seniors with varying stages of memory loss - from the simple forgetfulness of normal aging, to Mild Cognitive Impairment, a phase where subtle but measurable symptoms of cognitive decline appear, all the way to dementia and the end stages of Alzheimer's disease.

We know how the fear and diagnosis of memory loss affects individuals and families. Many of us at Senior Living Residences have dealt with this in our own lives with loved ones coping with memory loss. Learning about cognitive decline is one way to deal with this process in a more informed and hopeful way. That's why we have created this Guide to Mild Cognitive Impairment. (You may also be interested in our Guide to Alzheimer's Disease).

This collection of informative articles and FAQs can serve as a starting point and will answer many of your basic questions about early memory loss and Mild Cognitive Impairment. The information is a compilation from various sources, including three resources we consider among the best at providing easy-to-understand information about complex medical issues - The Boston University Alzheimer's Disease Center, the Alzheimer's Association and the Mayo Clinic.

Please peruse the articles and follow up with any of our Executive Directors should you have additional questions.
