My soon to be 86 yr old Momma was just recently "diagnosed" with having Mild Cognitive Impairment. I live with my Momma and I'm with her almost 24/7. Her memory has slowly gotten worse over the last few weeks. She saw a Neurologist last Friday for the first time. Is this condition a precursor to Altheimer's and or Dementia? If it is, how can this condition ever get better in some people? I read up on some articles from Mayo Clinic and Altzheimers.com that seem to suggest that some people "get better".
Momma's memory issues in my humble opinion is anything but "mild". I still feel like I'm in the dark about her condition and what I should be prepared to face.
Can someone help me out please?
