Background
Dementia (also known as neurocognitive impairment) directly reduces cognitive functioning, including memory, attention, orientation, abstract thinking etc. These symptoms will lower the self-care ability and social skills of the senior, resulting in various kinds of stress for the senior and their family caregivers. On the other hand, if the deterioration of cognitive functioning does not reach the degree of dementia but is clearly worse than the general senior of the same age, the seniors may suffer from mild cognitive impairment (MCI). They face a higher risk of developing dementia. Delaying the development of dementia and mild cognitive impairment for the senior may improve their quality of life as well as their caregivers. This study aims to investigate the treatment effects of Brain Gym®, a non-pharmacological intervention, on improving the cognitive functioning of the seniors with MCI and decreasing their depressive levels.
