Understanding Mild Cognitive Impairment

About This Program

This education session is intended for people who are experiencing Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), their close family members/friends and people experience decline in memory. MCI involves memory loss that is greater than expected for one’s age but not enough to compromise one’s ability to carry out daily activities. In this session you will learn about MCI, its types and diagnosis, the difference between MCI, normal forgetfulness and dementia and the methods to optimize cognitive health through lifestyle choices and social support. The webinar will end with a special QnA session with our host to answer all your dementia and brain health related questions.
