It is common for people with dementia to have mixed dementia—a combination of two or more types of dementia. A number of combinations are possible. For example, some people have both Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.
In a person with mixed dementia, it may not be clear exactly how many of a person’s symptoms are due to Alzheimer’s or another disease. Alzheimer’s is the most common pathology but rarely occurs alone.
