About the Process:
This paper systematically reviewed the small body of empirical research on dementia in the South Asian ethnic minority groups in the Anglo-American countries. The majority of these studies reported, a limited understanding of symptoms and causes; delayed diagnosis; lower Service utilization and, unwillingness to access formal care-giving, for dementia among South Asians as compared to the general population. Further research is needed, to understand the reasons for these differences, not just their occurrence,
