Abstract

Dementia has gained considerable medical and community interest over the past two decades. The World Health Organization ([WHO], 2012) dementia report estimated one new case of dementia worldwide every four seconds in 2010, three times as many as HIV/AIDS cases. The global estimate of the number of people living with dementia is 35.6 million, which is expected to double by year 2030, and triple by 2050 (WHO, 2012). Dementia is a common syndrome among older adults associated with a gradual onset of cognitive deficits that involve memory impairment and a progressive deterioration of cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning over time (American Psychiatric Association, 2000). Dementia is associated with over 100 different diseases, with common forms including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, and Lewy body dementia (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare [AIHW], 2012).
