Diagnosis of Migraine & Headache Types

Does migraine cause Dementia?

  • By chris123

    Hi all, my father is 73 years old and he is suffering from dementia for the past 6 months. Due to my busy schedule I was not able to take proper care of him and so I appointed a local nurse before 1 year. He was having severe migraine problem for the past 7 years. Now his behaviour became aggressive due to this dementia and the home nurse said she couldn’t tolerate him any more. I am very confused whether I should go for a senior care home or try for some hospitals for him. When my uncle had an Alzheimer’s problem, my cousin managed him with the help of a caregiving service, C-care Health Services, Ontario ( http://www.c-care.ca/ ). I’m also thinking to contact them, but I’m really confused that why dementia occurs for senior people? Does a migraine lead to dementia? I don`t know what to do. Can anyone help me?
