In brief: Not much

It is possible to develop or create new circulation, such as unblocking carotid artery, and brains have ways of developing new pathways to compensate, but for the most part we only slow down dementia, not reverse it.
Hopefully one day there will be better treatments.

In brief: No

Unfortunately, dementia is not reversible.
We can slow its progress by physical exercise, doing crosswords, staying socially active, and, with vasc. Dem, taking care of cholesterol and blood pressure issues.

In brief: In general no

But if someone has had a recent large strike some function may be regained.
