Dementia is a set of neurocognitive conditions marked by a gradual deterioration of cognitive capacity that interferes with daily life, with Alzheimer disease being the most common.1 This process may adversely affect household wealth, a key social determinant of health, due to negative outcomes of financial decision capacity2 and need for expensive medical and long-term care services.3,4 We compared trajectories in household wealth for older adults (aged ≥65 years) who developed probable dementia with those of a control cohort without dementia.
