basic human rights for folks with dementia? 

from the World Health Organization 

“People with dementia are frequently denied the basic rights and freedoms available to others. In many countries, physical and chemical restraint are used extensively in care facilities for elderly people and in acute care settings, even when regulations are in place to uphold the rights of people to freedom and choice”
