Abstract

ESCARBAJAL DE HARO, Andrés; MARTINEZ DE MIGUEL LOPEZ, Silvia  and  ROMERO SANCHEZ, José. Mild cognitive impairment in elderly users of municipal centers of the Region of Murcia (Spain). Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.1, pp.234-240. ISSN 1695-2294.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6018/analesps.32.1.196061.

This article of investigation tries to know the issue of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in elderly users of municipal centres to measure the importance of psycho-educational dimension like preventive alternative. For this reason, we have used a qualitative methodology (semistructurated interview) after a selection of people applying quantitative scales (e.g. MMSE, EUROTEST and Lawton). We selected a sample of 148 people for the scales, out of which 30 people were considered suitable for the interviews. The results show that despite the fact that elderly people have a MCI , they are able to practice activities for improving their quality of life. Within this investigation, new lines of work based in the free time, lonely, self esteem and self are opened to elderly people with MCI.

Keywords : Elderly people; health; quality of life; mild cognitive impairment; education.
