In brief: Not Alzheimer's
Vascular dementia is also called multi-infarct dementia.
It can be the result of many mini strokes in different parts of the brain. Also other restriction of blood flow to the brain can be the cause. Memory and other cognitive abilities are affected, depending on where the damage occurs.

In brief: SPEAK WITH THE DOC
There are many reasons for memory loss.
Often everyone thinks of alzheimer but there are other cause like alcoholism, head injuryand vascular meaning related to the veins and arteries. A vascular dementia means that there have been many small strokes that have lead to death of the brain tissue. After a period of time there can definitely be signs and symptoms of memory loss along with other.
