A Nation (Young and Old) Addresses Dementia

Here we have a novel approach to the challenges that come with a rising population of the elderly with dementia. This video about South Korea’s “War on Dementia” is incredibly inspiring, though misnamed, in my opinion. It is much less a war and more of an embrace and an understanding that dementia is complex and requires education to address the needs of a vulnerable population.

It will be interesting to see the outcome.
