Nowadays, preventing the effects of mental decline is an international priority, but there is little research into cognitive training inmild cognitive impairment (MCI). We present the results of a program aimed at teaching memory strategies and improvingmetacognitive abilities. This was associated with training to ameliorate caregivers’ assistance. Two groups (A and B) werecompared in a crossover design. After the first evaluation, group A (but not B) participated in a 6-month cognitive stimulationprogram. After a second assessment, only B received treatment and then a final evaluation was carried out on both the groups.The results show that (1) both the groups improved their performance as an effect of training; (2) improvements are specific tothe functions trained; (3) in the interval without intervention, performance of group B worsened; and (4) group A has maintainedtheir results over time. In conclusion, our results show that specific training may reduce memory impairment in MCI.
