The occurrence of dementia in persons over 65 is expected to grow by 40% over the next ten years.  Many elders with dementia are able to live in the community, with some help and assistance, allowing them to avoid the costs and risks of nursing home care.   Thankfully, many cities across the country endeavor to meet the challenge of providing supportive services to elders.  See this fascinating Wall Street Journal article for what one Midwestern city is doing to improve lives of the elderly.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/more-cities-aim-to-be-dementia-friendly-1445539091
