Dementie is een veelvoorkomende aandoening onder ouderen. Uit recent bevolkingsonderzoek blijkt dat in Nederland ongeveer 160.000 ouderen van 55 jaar en ouder lijden aan dementie ( Ott et al., 1996). De prevalentie neemt exponentieel toe met de leeftijd, variërend van 4 procent onder ouderen ≥ 55 jaar, tot 32 procent onder ouderen ≥ 85 jaar. De meest voorkomende oorzaak is de ziekte van Alzheimer (72 procent), die nog steeds niet te behandelen is.
