Alzheimer’s accounts for 60 to 80 percent of all dementia cases.  includes 11 percent of those age 65 and older and one-third of those 85 and older. e disease also impacts more than 15 million family members, friends, and caregivers. Other types of dementia »Vascular dementia is a decline in thinking skills caused by conditions that block or reduce blood ow to the brain, depriving brain cells of vital oxygen and nutrients. these changes sometimes occur suddenly following strokes that block major brain blood vessels. It is widely considered the second most common cause of dementia after Alzheimer’s disease. » Multi-infarct dementia (MID) is a type of vascular dementia. It occurs when a series of small strokes causes a loss of brain function. A stroke, or brain infarct, occurs when the blood ow to any part of the brain is interrupted or blocked. the location of the stroke damage determines the type of symptoms that occur. »Mixed dementia is a condition in which abnormalities characteristic of more than one type of dementia occur simultaneously. Symptoms may vary, depending on the types of brain changes involved and the brain   6 regions affected, and may be similar to or even indistinguishable from those of Alzheimer’s or another dementia. »Parkinson’s disease dementia is an impairment in thinking and reasoning that many people with Parkinson’s disease eventually develop. As brain changes gradually spread, they often begin to affect 3 mental functions, including memory and the ability to pay attention, make sound judgments and plan the steps needed to complete a task. » »Dementia with Lewy bodies is a type of progressive dementia that leads to a decline in thinking, reasoning, and independent function due to abnormal microscopic deposits that damage brain cells. »Huntington’s disease dementia is a progressive brain disorder caused by a defective gene. It causes changes in the central area of the brain, which affect movement, mood, and thinking skills. Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is the most common human form of a group of rare, fatal brain disorders known as prion diseases. Misfolded prion protein destroys brain cells, resulting in damage that leads to a rapid decline in thinking and reasoning as well as involuntary muscle movements, confusion, difficulty walking, and mood changes. »Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is a group of disorders caused by progressive cell degeneration in the brain’s frontal lobes (the areas behind the forehead) or its temporal lobes (the regions behind the ears).» Normal-pressure hydrocephalus is a brain disorder in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain’s ventricles, causing thinking and reasoning problems, difficulty walking, and loss of bladder control. »Down syndrome dementia develops in people born with extra genetic material from chromosome 21, one of the 23 human chromosomes. As individuals with Down syndrome age, they have a greatly increased risk of developing a type of dementia that’s either the same as or very similar to Alzheimer’s disease
