The number of Canadian seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia is rising steadily, and so is the burden on caregivers and health care systems.
Dementia in Canada provides a comprehensive look at dementia’s impact on Canada’s health systems, and the challenges seniors living with dementia face at home, in long-term care and in hospitals.
