About 61% of seniors with dementia in Canada live at home — and they require support while staying there.
In long-term care, seniors with dementia are at higher risk of being physically restrained and given potentially inappropriate antipsychotic drugs than other seniors. However, policy changes and educational supports have helped spur a decrease in this trend over the past several years.
Canadians with young-onset dementia present unique care challenges Fewer Canadians are diagnosed with dementia before age 65 than as seniors — but their needs can be just as great. At the time of diagnosis, people with young-onset dementia may still be working, taking care of their children and parents, and meeting financial commitments. Learn more about how care is different for people with young-onset dementia.
The growing number of seniors living with dementia is leaving some primary care doctors feeling less well-prepared to manage dementia care in the community.

Figures are based on the primary diagnosis or the diagnosis that contributed most to the patient’s length of stay during that hospitalization period.
Many factors contribute to the observed variations in the analysis of indicators at the provincial/territorial and regional levels. These include, but are not limited to, geography, population health, provincial and regional health service resources, and environmental and socio-economic characteristics. It is important to consider these factors and the effect they may have on indicator results when conducting comparative analyses.
The basic unit of observation is the discharge abstract or the record of an inpatient’s stay in a psychiatrici or general hospital. The discharge abstract is completed at separation (discharge or death). Records are grouped into fiscal years based on the inpatient’s date of separation from the hospital. If an individual was hospitalized more than once in the same fiscal year, a separate record for each stay was submitted. Hence the basic units of observation are events, not unique patients. If an inpatient was admitted prior to the beginning of a fiscal year, the days stayed prior to the year of separation are included in the total days stayed for that event.
