This is an excellent article with important information. Makes a difficult subject much easier to understand. Thank you!

Nov 7, 2018 · Dr. Locke presents in New Orleans! in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

The new program is a much needed resource for our senior population! Not sure how you can fit anymore "on your plate", but I wish you success.
The focus away from pharmaceutical treatment to life style change is long overdue. Bonnie

Oct 23, 2018 · Now What? The Importance of Having Purpose as We Age in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

This is an interesting subject with MCI. Seems in our last three years we have changed our "sense of purpose" with the ability to carry out volunteer roles in our community. When something becomes difficult then the "sense of confidence" is threatened and we have to change our "sense of purpose".

Oct 13, 2018 · I Tried a Mediterranean Diet Meal Delivery Kit for a Week, and This is What Happened in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

This is a wonderful post. So much good info on the meal delivery services. When we try this we are so informed now. It seems like a healthy way to have a helper at meal time, save time shopping, and eat healthier than opting to eat eating out. Sometimes our energy needs to be used in other ways rather than being spent on meals. Thank you.

Jul 28, 2018 · Planning for the Future: Advance Directives in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

This is an excellent article on the subject. Having had my Mother live with us the last four years of her life in OK we had just gone through the "end of life" experience. All our advance directives had been completed in OK. When we relocated here to Mesa, AZ we did the new paper work required in a new state. That was just around the time of my husbands diagnosis of MCI. I'm sure everything would be the same; except for thinking about his name being my first choice on the documents. The children listed after him would step up and make decisions if he is unable in the future. There may be a question someday and changes make in the future if necessary. How do others handle this?

Jul 1, 2018 · Happiness in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

Wonderful techniques….now to make them a HABIT. We can not do of the above, all the time. So maybe frame the info and be reminded often will help the techniques become part of our daily life. I'm sure we all do some of these things often, maybe just not often enough on a daily basis. Bonnie

May 16, 2018 · Can Computer Games Help My Memory? in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

Games are good at any age. We enjoy a game night often with neighbors. Also a Mahjong group that plays one afternoon a week.
Some evenings just the two of us enjoy a game and keep the TV off. We may learn a bit slower, or it takes longer, but we have lots of time if we make time for these activities. Good luck, I need did manage a good offensive Chess game, only defensive years ago when playing my sons.

May 9, 2018 · Can Computer Games Help My Memory? in Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

Right on: This was the subject of a chat with Dr. Locke at our recent booster session. The good news is we can use several methods with similar results. In our case the tech issues of the computer games caused challenges beyond the benefit. It is much more fun at our house with the musical instrument lessons and practice sessions. Loving the results so far of this new challenge.
