Resources on Other Dementias and Related Diseases

My mother had Parkinson's symptoms as well as Alzheimer's, and she also had little strokes, so she had Multi-Infarct dementia as well. It seems that a lot of people with Alzheimer's have these other conditions as well. And there are so many other diseases and conditions that result in dementias that have symptoms that are much like those of Alzheimer's. I want to try to gather as much information as I can about these other diseases and link them here.
