As we embark on the journey of prioritizing our well-being, it’s crucial to address the nuances of cognitive health, especially as we gracefully age. One common concern that deserves our attention is dementia, a condition that affects memory, cognitive function, and overall mental clarity. At PPMA, we understand the importance of proactive healthcare, and we’d like to shed light on the value of early screening for Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).

MCI is often considered a transitional stage between normal aging and more serious conditions like Alzheimer’s disease.

We believe that individuals over the age of 65, even those without noticeable symptoms, can benefit from the MCI screen. Early screening not only allows for timely intervention but also provides a baseline for comparison, aiding in the detection of subtle changes over time.
