Availability of residential long-term care (LTC) facilities for people with dementia and physical disabilities varies from country to country and within countries. In many areas of the world, relatively little funding is allocated to the LTC sector. Even between developed nations there is considerable variation in the types, organization, funding and policies of residential facilities. Hence, caution needs to be exercised when considering generalizations about how residential care is or should be provided for people with dementia.
