Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment: A Guide to Maximizing Brain Health and Reducing Risk of Dementia, is the first comprehensive book to be published on Mild Cognitive Impairment or MCI. MCI is considered a transition stage or border zone between mild cognitive changes associated with normal aging and more serious cognitive problems caused by an underlying disease such as Alzheimer's.
This book is organized into three sections:
- What MCI is, how it differs from normal aging and dementia, what it may lead to and its risk factors
- How MCI is diagnosed and treated, how it affects individuals and their family members
- Information about how to optimize cognitive health through lifestyle choices like diet and exercise, and cognitive and social engagement, and the use of practical, effective memory strategies
