Dementia - Health Information

Here is a great article on Dementia, from Merck Manuals for Health Care Professionals.  Many older adults are affected by signs and symptoms of dementia, and it can be very distressing for the person and their family members.

Dementia may occur at any age but affects primarily the elderly (about 5% of those aged 65 to 74 and 40% of those > 85). It accounts for more than half of nursing home admissions. (Merck Manual)
