This guide explains what vascular dementia is, what causes it and what you should do if you are diagnosed with it. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke or who think they may have vascular dementia.
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by disease or injury. This causes the structure of the brain to change, leading to the loss of some brain cells.
In this project, the aim is to demonstrate that failure of drainage of fluid from the grey and white matter of the brain is a mechanism underlying SVD.
A collaboration of experts in stroke and vascular dementia has worked with people affected by both diseases to create a program of work that answers fundamental questions: who will develop memory and thinking problems after stroke, why does this happen, how can we treat it?
The Stroke Association is holding this workshop to set the priorities for vascular dementia research in the UK.
If you are worried about vascular dementia, this guide is for you. It provides information about the signs of vascular dementia, living with the condition, and getting help and support.
