The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) has published a report on the costs of dementia in 2012, co-authored by Anders Gustavsson. The costs of dementia are estimated at 63 billion SEK (~7 billion EUR) in 2012, in an estimated 158 thousand persons with dementia. The total costs are increasing over time due to the aging of the population resulting in more persons living with the disease. However, the per person costs have decreased during the last decade, mainly due to a shift from expensive care in residential care settings as persons with dementia live in their ordinary homes longer.
