Are "dementia patients" in India the Hidden elders ?

"Active, visible elders, and inactive, tucked away, hidden elders", by Swapna Kishore on Swapna Writes Blog, January 16, 2012.

"I can imagine how uncomfortable it is for people who are growing older to hear about or see their peers who are facing problems. 

Probably people who are ageing well and remaining active and hoping to continue to do so want no reminders that their peers may not be faring that well along that age curve. 

They may, therefore, be tempted to dismiss off people facing problems as people who are not determined enough, positive enough, and they may not want to connect with the less-well people or even see them unless they are “success stories” who have overcome a problem."
