What are the Signs of Mild Cognitive Impairment?

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a condition where people have more memory or thinking problems compared to other people of the same age. The symptoms of MCI are not as severe as those of Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. People with MCI can usually take care of themselves and carry out their normal daily activities. A few signs of MCI may include:

  • Losing things often
  • Forgetting to attend important events or appointments
  • Having more trouble coming up with words than other people of the same age

Learn more about the signs and symptoms of mild cognitive impairment on the Alzheimers.gov website.
