Stroke-Related Dementia (cont.)

Next Steps

Follow-up

If you have had a stroke or have vascular dementia, you should see your health care provider regularly. These visits allow him or her to evaluate your symptoms and adjust treatments if necessary.

You may eventually become unable to care for yourself, or even to make decisions about your care.

  • It is best to discuss future care arrangements with family members as early as possible, so that your wishes can be clarified and documented for the future.

  • Your health care provider can advise you about legal documents that you should complete to ensure that these wishes are observed.
