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.
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.
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.
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?
Call for proposals NOW OPEN for our third Priority Programme Award in the area of Vascular Dementia.
On 29 January 2015, we held our Research Round-table meeting on Vascular Dementia.
In partnership with Alzheimer's Society and the British Heart Foundation, we are delighted to announce our funding of three new awards in vascular dementia research. This constitutes a combined investment of £2.2 million into a key area of unmet need.
This research programme could substantially increase our understanding of how SVD develops, leading to new ways to investigate SVD and test drugs which may help treat it.
