Aging is the process of becoming older [1]. Prof. Arthur Kleinman introduces the global aging problem from the physical health and mental health of the elderly people. In China, current challenges to high-quality dementia care illustrate both country’s wide crisis in elder care and the limitations of its mental health services. Chinese families bear the burden of care and frequently struggle to provide dementia care to the elderly [2].

老龄化是衰老的过程[1]。 Arthur Kleinman教授从老年人身体健康和心理健康出发,介绍了全球老龄化问题。 当前中国对高质量痴呆症护理的挑战体现了这个国家在老年人护理方面存在广泛的危机以及其精神卫生服务的局限性。中国的家庭承担着照顾老人的重担,并普遍努力的为老年人提供痴呆症护理[2]。
