Mentions: In case of dementia, although the number of dementia patients was below about 30 per 10,000 people in 2000, the number rose to around 450,000 in 2010 and it is expected to be around 70 in 2020 as shown in Fig. 3. This increase represents an increase by 50% every five year, which accounts for the largest share of medical expense for the elderly.
