We could not find this information specifically for people living with dementia. However, it has been estimated that around 100,000 people live in such facilities, of which 84,000 are older people, and the remaining are younger people with mental illness or disabilities (Camarano & Kanso, 2010).

We are unable to find information also after checking privately owned long-term facilities such as Rukun Senior Living and Jababeka Senior Living (RUKUN Senior Living, n.d.-b).

The total number of people with dementia in residential long-term care facilities in Kenya is not available.

No data is available. Even the total exact number of adults or older adults living in residential LTC institutions is not known given the fact that Mexico does not have a compulsory national registry of institutions or its residents.

There is no dementia-surveillance in South Africa.
