Anger and arguments can be signs of mild cognitive impairment. What can partner do to handle issue?


Medications exist for this illness, but some folks are not ready for this solution. I know one elderly couple whose intense arguments send the husband to the hospital with heart impairments.

    Peachy - Sometimes the old saying is true that "silence is golden". Arguments do bring in unrelated topics at times and make the situation worse. A psychiatrist believes in holding a pencil like a microphone, putting you in control until you finish.
