Stroke-Related Dementia Treatment
Treatments available now cannot reverse the brain damage caused by a stroke once the injury is more than a few hours old. The goals of treatment are preventing new strokes by enhancing vascular health, slowing the progression of cognitive decline, and treating the symptoms related to it. Treatments include medication, behavioral interventions, and surgery.
