Medical Edge: Habit Program

By

Mild Cognitive Impairment, or MCI, is a condition that can be a precursor to Dementia-like Alzheimer's Disease. People with MCI have problems with things like memory and judgment.  After someone learns they have MCI problems, they're left wondering "What comes next?" That's why Mayo Clinic developed "The Habit Program."… "What we're trying to do is have people develop habits. Habit is a form of memory, but it's the kind of memory that's preserved even as other aspects of your memory decline," said Glenn Smith, M.D., Mayo Clinic Psychology.
