Abstract:

This paper explores the narrative account of vascular dementia, using prequels, sequels, parasequels and consequels to illustrate its neurodegenerative development. It analyzes vascular aphasia, lethologica, prosopagnosia, and Charles Bonnet’s Syndrome, unravelling the progression of vascular dementia. Drawing from literature and clinical observations, it examines the condition's narrative arc, showcasing diverse manifestations and trajectories. By conceptualizing vascular dementia narratively, the paper offers insights into cognitive impairment's evolving nature and the interplay of neurological symptoms. Understanding this narrative framework enhances clinical comprehension and promotes holistic approaches to diagnosis, treatment, and caregiver support.


Keywords – aphasia, Charles Bonnet’s syndrome, lethologica, prosopagnosia, vasclar dementia.
