The number of affected elderly with cognitive disorders worldwide is expected to reach 82 million by year 2030. Cognitive issues in the older adults can be attributed to a range of factors such as metabolic issues, delirium, etc. In addition, affected older adults may also experience difficulties in a range of cognitive functions like memory, attention as well as changes in functional skills and behaviours.
