Frequently Asked Questions

4. What is mild cognitive impairment?

Mild cognitive impairment, or MCI, is a condition that can be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease—but not everyone with MCI will develop Alzheimer’s. People with MCI can still take care of themselves and do their normal activities. Signs of MCI may include

  • losing things often
  • forgetting to go to events and appointments
  • having more trouble coming up with words than other people the same age.
