chronic ischemic gliosis

My mother, who is a highly functional 83 year old, has had recent "mental fuzziness", poor memory
and generally mental functioning.  MRI done shows "innumberable foci of increased signal intensity in
subcortical and periventricular deep white matter consistent with chronic ischemic gliosis"
What exactly does this mean?  What symptoms are associated with this condition?  Is there any chance
for a cure, or anything that might improve functioning?  And lastly, is this a condition that continues to
get worse?
thank you
