And control. Participants mini mental state examination questionnaire, depression and social isolation completed. Rehabilitation program in 18 sessions over eight weeks and two to three weeks. Data were analyzed with analysis of covariance model. Results: The findings were that the experimental group received cognitive rehabilitation intervention, compared with the control group, based on the mental state examination scores (F= 24,30, P£0,01) significantly better cognitive function; depression ratings(F= 17,67, P£0,01) lower depression rates and according to social isolationist attitudes(F= 25,58, P£0,01) less social isolation. Conclusion: The results of the study showed that increased cognitive, emotional, and neuromuscular activity is effective in improving cognitive function, reducing depression, and social isolation in mild cognitive impairment.Also, the partial square (effect size) for the effect of the independent variable on the dependent variable is 0.524, which indicates that 52% of the changes in the dependent variable are explained by the independent variable. In other words, education based on increased cognitive, emotional and neuromuscular activity has been able to affect 52% of the daily performance of the elderly (MCI). Therefore; This designed training package can probably be designed as software that includes the combined effect of the variables of this research, and more people will be treated with this package.
