Abstract

Practice Impact: The maximising cognition handouts were shown to raise awareness of practical strategies to mitigate memory difficulties in the group that received them. Therefore it is recommended that such resources are made available to supporters of people with mild cognitive impairment and early dementia.IntroductionApproximately 20% of people aged over 60 years have been estimated to suffer from mild cognitive impairment (MCI) .

However, when we reviewed available information resources, few had targeted clients with MCI or early dementia. Some information was
