Abstract: The aging of the population in developed countries is an obvious fact and well known for years. It is also known that old age is a period of life especially susceptible to chronic neurological processes, such as Mild Cognitive Impairment and Dementia. In order to respond to this challenge, we have considered, based on the current situation and in accordance with the legal framework and the strategic objectives of the Health Service of the Princedom of Asturias, to estimate the demand, evaluate the needs and propose the design for the implementation of a Unit Of Cognitive Impairment and Dementias in "La Fundación Hospital de Jove", a concerted hospital, belonging to the public network of the Health Service of the Princedom of Asturias and reference for the district one, of area V. This unit would be constituted as an ambulatory unit of integral diagnosis coordinated with the different specialties, levels of care and services of the community.
