In brief: Doesn't seem to
Hormone therapy seems to have little or no effect on cognitive function.
Estrogen + progestin or estrogen alone are not recommended for women at any age to prevent cognitive decline. Hormone therapy appears to increase the risk of dementia when started in women who are 65 or older.

In brief: Changes
The answer changes often because the evidence keeps coming in; at present, it appears that e+p doesn't have a beneficial effect in this way.
