Resources for MCI


Symptoms of MCI are often frustrating causing some persons to withdraw from social activities. To help cope with the changes caused by MCI, finding support is very important.

To Family and Friends

Consider how the changes caused by MCI are affecting the person’s life. Support this person to stay active and find strategies for coping. Keep in mind that the memory loss and other changes are caused by the MCI and cannot be controlled by the person.
