The focus of Learning the Ropes for Living with MCI® is on optimizing cognitive health through lifestyle choices, memory training and psychosocial support.
People living with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) are encouraged to attend along with a close family member or friend.
What is MCI?
- MCI refers to cognitive decline, commonly involving memory, that is greater than expected for age but does not significantly reduce independence in carrying out daily activities.
- MCI represents risk of future dementia. The overarching goal of Learning the Ropes is to influence this risk by delaying or perhaps even preventing dementia.
Learning the Ropes For Living With MCI is facilitated by the Alzheimer Society of Perth County First Link Support team twice a year in Stratford.
