Mild cognitive impairment is a hard thing to live with — and a hard thing to understand, for that matter.
Unfortunately, doctors often add to the confusion, by not explaining it well to their patients.
That’s why it’s always welcome to hear from a doctor who can explain MCI in a clear way, and help people understand what it is and how it differs from dementia. In today’s video, I share the insights of one such doctor, Dr. Jo Cleveland of the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, including her list of the four “major red flags” that can signal when MCI may be progressing to dementia.
