Thank you very much for this presentation and for providing this great road map.I had a question regarding resources available for patients who are in the early stages of dementia.I often get questions from family members of patient's that are beginning to decline cognitively, and they express many difficulties, including how they help their relative recognize that there is a problem, as well as where to go from there.

Dementia frequently co-exists with other significant medical and social issues and high frequency in elderly, Do you screen all these patients with beers medication reconciliation, elder abuse, ADL’s, Health care proxy/MOLST, fall evaluation/prevention etc.
