Abstract: In this work I present a patient with amnestic cognitive difficulties, who comes to a consultation for memory problems. Cognitive impairment is considered as a syndrome that presents an alteration of memory functioning, another different domain or several cognitive areas, without compromising daily life activities. Several subtypes have been described. In this paper, I focus on amnesiac type of mild cognitive impairment. The results found in the neuropsychological evaluation protocol reveal alterations in immediate and delayed memory. Low-normal performance is observed in executive functions. The rest of the cognitive areas are preserved. These findings, as well as data from the family interview and the clinical evaluation of dementia, are compatible with mild cognitive impairment. The patient needs support in some instrumental daily life activities and was initially very concerned and sad for the loss of skills. The general objective of the intervention is to preserve the cognitive functioning of the patient and promote autonomy in his daily life. Specific objectives include awareness of the importance of implementing healthy lifestyle habits, carrying out a rehabilitation program adapted to his cognitive profile, using mnemonic strategies and external aids. The intervention proposed is based on an individualized cognitive training program through cognitive rehabilitation software and paper exercises, regular physical activity and cooperative social interactions.
