RE: Difference between alzheimers disease and vascular dementia
vascular dementia can vary on its onset. Alzheimers disease is generally a slow progression over several months to years. Vascular dementia (ie stroke) can manifest itself immediately. It is also not uncommon that different types of dementias coexist. Age, substance use and vascular disease are the risk factors for dementia in the person you are describing. I hope this was helpful.
