Background: The changes that occur with cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease could affect psychological aspects unrelated to memory. The purpose of this study is to compare 32 healthy older adults, 31 amnestic mild cognitively impaired (aMCI) adults, and 32 patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), in order to determine whether there are differences in their psychological wellbeing, resilience, and coping strategies.
