Dementia care may not be equivalent to conventional old age care and should be given attention separately from any other form of old age care. In the devalued field of care for elderly people, caring for those with dementia has been seen as an unrewarding job especially in developing country like India. Because of the rapid aging of India’s population, there has been proportionate increase in prevalence of the dementia leading to emergence of major socioeconomic challenges in dementia care and care giving. Lack of community awareness, rapid erosion of family support and poor government initiatives on these issues have been the well recognised drawbacks of dementia care in this country. This led us to review and analyse the current social and health care scenario with limited available evidence and literature pertaining to dementia care with special emphasis on issues facing dementia care and their prospects.
