The Economic and Social Costs of Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias in Ireland: An Aggregate Analysis
This paper describes the economic and social costs of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias in Ireland. To date there have been no Irish studies on the costs of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. Given that the proportion of elderly people in Ireland is projected to increase over the next few years, and that the occurrence of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias increases exponentially with age, information on the cost of this disease will potentially be very beneficial to researchers and policymakers alike.
