MENTAL HEALTH FOR SENIOR CITIZENS

In 2010, there were 3.7 million Indians with dementia and the total societal costs was about 14,700 crores. While the numbers are expected to double by 2030, costs would increase three times. Families are the main carers and they need support. Despite the magnitude, there is gross ignorance, neglect and scarce services for people with dementia and their families. There also are other mental health issues specific to the older age group.
