Abstract :
Early studies of the prevalence of dementia in Japan indicated low rates, but more recently rates have been rising to the levels shown in other countries. Extended family care of the elderly has been typical, but recent developments suggest that this is declining. The implications of recent social changes for the care of the demented elderly are discussed.
