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.
Fewer Canadians are diagnosed with dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, before age 65 than as seniors, but their needs can be just as great.
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.
