Nov 15, 2019 · Exercise Part 2: Does Exercise Change the Brain in People with MCI? in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

With the diagnosis of MCI summer of 2015 we started an exercise class with Silver Sneakers at our local fitness center. Often the cost of these classes are covered by your medical insurance. In our case we pay out of pocket and consider it preventive medicine. The class is held three days a week, 45 minutes long. Our class size is close to 100 seniors who understand the over-all value of regular exercise. It becomes a part of your routine, and we are positive this has been a big factor in keeping the MCI from progressing these pass years. Bonnie

The information in this article could be so very helpful to many people. When looking to find information about MCI there is not much to be found.
I recently attended an Alzheimer's association conference for the public and medical people working in the area…..there was no reference to MCI and no literature or information presented. My thinking was there is no $$$ to be made because of the no medication treatment for MCI.

Jul 12, 2019 · Feeling overwhelmed? Try these communication tips. in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

It gets easier with TIME to simply repeat the information in a sweet voice (not one that sounds like you are out of patience just because you have repeated something many times in a short period). After all, how would you like to be the person that has to repeatedly ask the question because the mind is blank! Hard to understand when it is our partner; not the same person we have lived with all these many years! It is kindness to them, while crying on the inside.

Jun 18, 2019 · Memory and Music Therapy in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

Interesting subject, we hear a lot about music therapy and memory. My husband started private baritone horn lessons a year ago. He played up to 10th grade in High School but dropped band when his family relocated and he had to attend a new high school. He had inherited his father's horn and we had moved it with us several moves in the last 25 years.
The lessons were enjoyed and he seemed to be doing well until interrupted by dental complications over a month ago. The real result will be known when he resumes lessons and practice. The time off has changed his HABIT…..and he feels he has lost ground. We shall see soon.
