Assessment and treatment for mild cognitive impairment (MCI)

Written by Emilie Head Thursday, 12 January 2012. Posted in Dementia & Memory, Treatments & Therapy

Although we can all be affected by 'senior moments' the Alzheimer's Society studies show that 10-15% of people with MCI go on to develop dementia. Moreover, underlying conditions can cause MCI such as high blood pressure, depression or sleep apnoea so it is important to obtain an assessment with a specialist. At Clinical Partners Memory Clinic our team led by Consultant Psychiatrist Paul Loughlin are able to offer full assessments, diagnosis and on-going treatment.
