Background: Cognitive impairment is fairly frequent as individuals get older, and it affects their quality of life.
Objective: The goal of this study was to discover the variables that influence cognitive performance in the early years of old age.
Methods: A total of 124 people were examined in this study. The Montreal Cognitive Assessment Scale was used to assess the participants' cognitive abilities. Self-made questionnaires were used to collect socio-demographic and behaviour (habit) related data. Lawton Instrumental Activities of Daily Living was used to investigate IADL. The statistical analysis method used was the Chi square test.
Results: The findings revealed substantial disparities in cognitive performance as a function of age. Other variables were not shown to be substantially linked to cognition. MCI was shown to be more common in females (52.7%) and non-smokers (47.3%).
Conclusion: factors affecting cognitive function were age, female gender and non smoker status.
