RESULTS: Of the 102 patients who participated in the study, 57 were males and 45 were females. The average age of the total group was 74,81 years, the average age of demented group was 77,96 years and the average age of non-demented group was 72,62 years. The prevalence of dementia was 22.5% and the prevalence of mild cognitive impairment was 25.5%. Dementia was detected in 17.5% of males and 28.9% of females. In the dementia group was 25% who did not attend school, primary school-secondary school was 22,6%, high school and college graduate was 18,8%.
CONCLUSION: As the elderly population in Turkey has increased rapidly in recent years, an increase in the prevalence of dementia is expected.

Future epidemiological studies should aim to increase the quality of life of patients through diagnosis in the early stages and the necessary precautions should be taken.
