It can be important to establish a diagnosis of MCI or amnestic MCI because it certainly helps a person to plan and consider the possible outcome of that condition.
It's also important because in the event that a person's able to get a neuropsychological assessment that defines the extent of the cognitive impairment, then tracking that person over time can give them information regarding the rate of that progression or the relative stability of their condition.
And that again, allows for planning and future consideration that could be important to the individual. A person interested in better understanding of possible mild kind of impairment should speak with their physician, who can refer them to a neuropsychologist who could possibly perform such an assessment and help them with tracking their condition over time.
