Dementia symptoms: An early sign of vascular dementia to watch out for

The Alzheimer’s Society reckons, in most cases, people with vascular dementia will already be on medications to treat underlying diseases, such as high blood cholesterol.

Those with vascular dementia will be advised to adopt a healthy lifestyle and, in particular, to regularly engage with exercise.

LiveScience reports that exercise “improves blood flow to the brain”, with scientific reviews highlighting that “exercisers learn faster, remember more, think clearer and bounce back more easily from brain injuries, such as a stroke”.

Anyone who is concerned that they may have vascular dementia should seek support from their GP.
