My friend's mom, who is in her late seventies, just received her diagnosis of vascular dementia, something that doctors already suspected for a while. At the moment, she is still quite with it on occasions, but they expect that she will deteriorate very soon. I think vascular dementia is caused by veins in the brain having some problems. Does vascular dementia have an impact on a person's life expectancy at all?

dementia is a horrible illness that robs a person of their memory and their ability to perform normal daily tasks You do not die from dementia itself but from another illness that may not be known until after the person has died. Due to the nature of the illness if a person with dementia becomes ill it can be difficult to diagnose as the person themselves cannot tell you they are suffering and are more likely to become aggresive agitated or tearful this is a sign that something is wrong. They say a person can live a long time with dementia it all depends on how rapidly the illness progresses some people live only a short few years while others can live over 15 yrs
