Vascular Dementia (VaD)

The most common dementia, after Alzheimer's and LBD, vascular dementia occurs after a stroke. It is non-progressive, but a series of small strokes can cause it to appear progressive.

Symptoms depend on the area of the brain damaged but include:


  • Cognitive symptoms: as with Alzheimer's. Other treatment depends on the area of the brain affected.
  • Other: Depends on area of brain damaged by stroke(s).
  • Prognosis for "cure" is greater than with AD or LBD, if damaged area of the brain can be rehabilitated.
