Neurologist 's  Response
The 2Echo report shows the usual changes one would expect in an elderly hypertensive patient. There is no specific worrying feature. However since the effects of hypertension have started showing, so you need to keep a strict control on your BP. Be regular in medication and follow ups with doctor. Most important goal in BP control is to prevent further damage and complications.
Good luck.
