Experienced Mild Memory Impairment Testing Near You
Everyone’s brain changes as they get older. You may experience difficulty with word finding when conversing with others or increased forgetfulness, such as where you left your car keys. Mild memory impairment or mild cognitive impairment refers to the stage between the typical decline in memory expected with aging and a more serious condition, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Some people with mild memory impairment never get worse while others progress to experiencing dementia. There are different types of dementia besides Alzheimer’s, but this is the most common.
Mild memory impairment goes beyond typical word finding difficulties or forgetfulness and appears as increased difficulty following the plot of a movie or book, problems making decisions, getting lost around places you know well, showing poor judgment such as with finances, and trouble following a conversation.
Is there a Cure for Mild Memory Impairment?
There is no single cause of mild memory or cognitive impairment. When experiencing mild cognitive changes, people often worry about early onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Mild cognitive changes may or may not progress to dementia and if identified and treated effectively may improve over time, particularly if they are connected to a treatable medical condition (e.g., depression).
