Mild cognitive impairment is a disorder in-between dementia and normal forgetfulness of the elderly, caused by a regression in brain function deriving from nerve cells loss. This illness starts growing from any part of the brain and then takes several years to spread slowly and steadily to other parts. Abnormal signs will be noticed when neurons functioned for memories are destroyed. The main symptom of mild cognitive impairment is related to memory leading to having dementia, which will affect individual daily life. The treatment of mild cognitive impairments includes medications and non-medications.Non-medication treatments for remedying this sickness consist of memorization, cognitive-training, and activity therapy. These methods are applied to optimize brain processes, help brain create balance, and stimulate the connections of neurons and brain, resulting in decelerating or preventing dementia. This article aims to present concepts of cognitive behavior stimulation in elderly with mild cognitive impairment, cognitive disorders and brain potential improvement therapy. Cognitive stimulation therapy is an alternative method to organize activities that encourage the use of data processing processes rather than knowledge of facts to improve memory, perception, decision-making, and executive thinking; so it could slow down the progression of dementia and maintains a good quality of life for the elderly.
