Mixed dementia ‘more common in older age groups’ – what is it? Symptoms to spot

The Alzheimer’s Society says: “Alzheimer’s disease is caused by a build-up of faulty proteins in and around brain cells – particularly cells that help to form memories.

“The ‘vascular’ part of mixed dementia is caused by problems with the supply of blood throughout the brain.”

Vascular dementia can be a result of having a stroke or a series of mini-strokes.

“In other cases it can be due to a more gradual deterioration of small blood vessels over many years,” the charity says.
