Welcome to Health Care Magic

Mild cognitive impairment is sometimes presenting feature of dementia. If proper attention is given to MCI then the progression can be prevented.

- First thing to keep in mind is that patient is asked to not to lie on bed throughout the day. His activity levels should be increased. Daily exercise or walk also help in good health.

- In patients pocket complete details about the address and phone number of patient should be kept.

- Patient should play games like chess, solitaire.

- He should be motivated to solve puzzles or sudoku.

- In night patient should be properly attended. If patient wakes up to answer natures call he should be assisted.

- Supplements like B12, folic acid, methylcobalamin helps to halt progression. Green tea consists of natural oxidants and also improves the condition.

- If memory impairment become distressing then there is need to consult a Psychiatrist. Medicines like donepezil, memantin helps to slow the progression to dementia.
