Mild Cognitive Impairment & Early Alzheimer's Disease

Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and Early/Mild Alzheimer’s Disease represent stages in the progression of cognitive decline, with MCI often considered an intermediate stage between normal age-related cognitive changes and more severe forms of dementia like Alzheimer’s disease. MCI is characterized by noticeable cognitive deficits that are beyond what is expected for an individual’s age but do not yet significantly impair daily functioning. While some individuals with MCI remain stable or even revert to normal cognitive function, it can progress to Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia in some cases. In contrast, Early/Mild Alzheimer’s Disease marks the initial stages of Alzheimer’s, with individuals experiencing memory loss, difficulty with problem-solving, and confusion. These symptoms can have a notable impact on daily life and functioning but are not as severe as the advanced stages of the disease. Early diagnosis and intervention are crucial in both MCI and Early Alzheimer’s to help manage symptoms and plan for future care.
