Let’s hope you never have to deal with MCI, Alzheimer’s or dementia. If you are experiencing some cognitive impairment, I encourage you to go to your doctor. Do not wait. Request a cognitive assessment and be open about symptoms and concerns you may have. Early diagnosis is key in the treatment of MCI, Alzheimer’s and other dementia.
The most important thing to know is that you and your family are not alone. Contact the Alzheimer’s Association at alz.org/dayton for information on local resources like personal care consultations, educational programs and support groups. You can also call (937) 291-3332 or the 24/7 Helpline at (800) 272-3900.
