The article discusses in detail the features of cognitive functions in the elderly with mild cognitive impairment. The aim of this research was to develop, implement and study the impact of psycho-correctional programs on mild cognitive impairment in the elderly. This article focuses on such cognitive functions as memory, attention, and thinking. We used the following methods to implement the research goal and objectives: theoretical analysis of scientific literature on the research topic; psychodiagnostic methods: Wechsler memory scale (WMS), the “10 words of Luria” method, Schulte tables, Munsterberg's test, methodology Simple Analogies, and Object Exclusion methods. Wilcoxon Signed-Rank Test for matched pairs, a method of mathematical statistics, was used to process the data obtained. Based on the initial diagnosis, a program was developed for psychological correction of cognitive functions in the elderly with mild cognitive impairment, which included a number of therapies of a certain duration. Based on the repeated diagnostics, recommendations were developed to use the psychological correctional program by psychologists, clinical psychologists working with the elderly, as well as for the people of this age to maintain their cognitive functions within the individual norm and their relatives.
