none just learned my mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia

hello. after having noticed that my mom started to repeat things and get slighlty forgetful in the past 2 years and also having suffered a minor stroke i spoke to her doctor today. he told me that he has diagnosed her with vascular dementia after various test and checks. he says the medication she takes is all that can be done at this point (blood thinners, aspirin etc). she also had both arteries (by her throat) "cleared". she is still i d say 90% coherent, but i wonder how to act on this news? what to get myself prepared for? how quick will things get bad? i have not addressed it with either her or dad, as they always claim "everything is just fine" evertime they come home from doctors visits. it seems they chose to hide it. how to react to this? what to do? i just dont know how to handle this new page in our family book - thank you much for help and advice! astrid
