This section to be updated soon.

In the LTC guideline for Puskesmas, transitional/subacute care (from hospital to community care) is recognised as an important part of LTC. However, it is not yet widely available in Indonesia and needs further development (Kementerian Kesehatan RI Direktorat Jenderal Kesehatan Masyarakat, 2018).

The care and protection of older members of society bill, 2018; PART III section 10 (1) states that “each county government shall establish and implement Community based programmes for the care and protection of older members of society residing within the county” (Republic of Kenya, 2018b), page 341. However, this is not specific to people with dementia.
