    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Alzheimers sjukdom och vaskulär demens är de vanligaste orsakerna till demens hos äldre, ett tillstånd som i takt med den ökande åldrade befolkningen kommer att innebära ett allt större lidande och en alltjämt ökande ekonomisk belastning. Direkta och indirekta kostnader för vård och omsorg av demenspatienter uppgår sannolikt till ca 40 miljarder kronor om året. READ MORE
