Vascular cognitive impairment refers to a continuum of cognitive disorders ranging from mild vascular cognitive impairment to vascular dementia. Besides memory loss, those with vascular cognitive impairment may have other cognitive symptoms such as problems with executive function, attention and concentration, visual-spatial abilities, as well as slowing of motor processing speed. The following factors increase the risk of vascular dementia: age, lack of physical activity, obesity, midlife hypertension, diabetes, atrial fibrillation, and stroke.
