Cerebrovascular disease plays an important supporting role in many persons with mild cognitive impairment and dementia, and often co-occurs with Alzheimer’s disease. This webinar will provide an overview of the role of cerebrovascular disease in late-life cognitive impairment, including risk factors and common misconceptions, and explore the challenges associated with understanding the role of vascular risk factors, stroke history and stroke imaging findings. In addition, issues related to managing the symptoms of vascular dementia will be discussed.
