2019 Report on Heart, Stroke and Vascular Cognitive Impairment

Heart and Stroke’s 2019 report, (Dis)connected, reveals new research showing the complex links between heart conditions, stroke, and vascular cognitive impairment.

Everything is connected:

All roads can lead to dementia. The link between stroke and dementia is not new. But what about a  heart attack? New research says it’s possible. That’s just one finding from new Heart & Stroke               research that connects heart  conditions, stroke and vascular cognitive impairment (dementia being the most severe form).  These connections are so deep and complex that having one condition puts you at risk for others.

A new reality for health care:

Our hearts and brains are deeply connected but our healthcare system simply isn’t designed to treat the entire person. These complex links put increased pressure and demand on healthcare providers. All this at a time when hospitalizations are on the rise.
