Vascular Dementia


Secondary to Alzheimer’s disease, vascular disease or vascular cognitive impairment is another cause for dementia. Vascular dementia may be a group of conditions that cause a decline in cognitive skills. People with vascular dementia experience problems with reasoning, judgment, and memory. These changes can occur suddenly, or they will be mild and go unnoticed initially. Stroke is said to be a common cause of vascular dementia which leads to blockage or lack of blood flow to the brain. Reduced blood flow to the brain leads to deprived oxygen rate. Lack of oxygen and blood can damage the brain, even during a short period of your time. Along with this other causes of vascular dementia include narrowed or chronically damaged blood vessels.
