The rapidly increasing numbers of older adults with dementia and other mental health problems throughout the world have huge ramifications for nurses who will care for these individuals, as well as for health care systems. This article explores some current problems in the health care systems and makes suggestions for better, more efficient ways to meet the growing mental health needs of the aging population. It also addresses moral-ethical dilemmas that will likely affect mental health nurses caring for this population.
