In brief: It may not happen.

My father suffered from vascular dementia and was in a nursing home for many years and never had these symptoms.
What is interesting about vascular dementia ia that it is intermittent. One day a person is fine and clear as a bell and the next he doesn't recognize you. A day latter the reverse.
