At this point in time I am recording events to give the reader an idea of life with dementia the elephant in the room.  Mixed dementia following stroke is a double whammy as you are never sure what is the cause of presentation.

There is no treatment for vascular dementia in the NHS. Once diagnosis has been made advice is for healthy living with a sensible diet and  regular exercise. If stroke has created, or exacerbated the condition, then there is a medication regime designed to prevent a further episode.
