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.

Update: My sister passed away of Parkinson's Disease a few years ago. I will try to add as many links as I can find to resources about this disease. And I will do a memorial for my sister as time allows, and memorials for all my siblings and siblings-in-law who I have lost over the past few years.

Also, my ex-husband, the one I married twice (who was my forever friend even when we weren't together), had Huntington's disease in his family. His mother had it and three of his five siblings did and all passed away before he did (not of Huntington's) last year. Even some of his nieces and nephews have it or have already passed from it as well.
