About the Topic

Dementia is a major public health concern affecting over 770,000 Veterans. The incidence of dementia increases with age, with more than 90% of those affected over the age of 60. It is one of the most costly chronic conditions that the VA treats and its financial impact is expected to grow with the increasing number of aging Veterans. This presentation will introduce the common types of dementia and distinguish it from delirium.
