The most common dementia other than Alzheimer’s is Vascular Dementia, accounting for 20 to 30 percent of cases and is widely believed to be under-diagnosed. Also known as Vascular Cognitive Impairment, Vascular Dementia is caused by blocked or reduced blood flow to the brain. Impaired judgment or the ability to plan is more likely to be the initial symptom rather than memory loss.
