DEMENTIA is a public health emergency and a scientific challenge in developed and developing countries. Both incidence and prevalence of dementia are rising, increasing exponentially with increasing age. Dementia is associated with higher mortality: 2.3 cases/100 person. Dementia is a major cause of functional dependence. Behavior and psychiatric problems are quite high and they should be a major concern for the management. Likewise, they are the major determinants of the quality of life for both patient and caregiver.
