Online Tests for Mild Cognitive Impairment
Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a stage between the expected cognitive performance of normal aging and the more serious decline of dementia. It’s characterized by problems with memory, language, thinking or judgment.
Signs of mild cognitive impairment include a “change in thinking” — this typically means memory problems, but it can also include planning and reasoning skills that could negatively affect higher function tasks like managing personal finances. Most people with MCI are able to continue to live independently.
Having mild cognitive impairment may increase your risk of later developing dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease or other neurological conditions. But some people with mild cognitive impairment never get worse, and a few eventually get better.
