Training for Optimal Routines in Mild Cognitive Impairment

Start: July 2019
End: July 2025
Enrollment: 150

What Is This Study About?

This study will test the effects of strategy training compared to enhanced usual care in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). It is designed to engage people in meaningful daily activities through generating self-selected goals, monitoring daily activities, scheduling activities, and finding solutions to barriers. Researchers are investigating the training as a way to slow the emergence of disability and keep people engaged in meaningful daily activities for as long as possible. Participants assigned to the study intervention will engage in 10 one-hour sessions in their home over five weeks with a trained research interventionist. Participants in the comparison group will receive their usual care and will also be connected to additional resources to meet their needs.
