South Korea Addressing Dementia

Thanks to a fellow social worker, I have this link to share to show how South Korea is addressing Dementia.
Like many other countries in the world, 40-50% of the population will be 65+ and with each year of being in the ‘older adult’ demographic, the chance of developing Dementia rises.
It is definitely worth reading and I think the best way for any country to implement a plan is to look to other countries to see what is being considered, implemented and addressed.
