Prognosis and Prevention 

The outlook for people with memory problems depends on the type and severity of the memory loss. People with amnesia or reversible forms of memory loss often are able to go about their day-to-day routines with little or no difficulty. People with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) may need help from friends or family members from time to time.

Patients with dementia and more severe cases of memory loss may require assisted living or long term care, especially if there are concerns about home safety, nutrition, medications, and wandering.
