I would have thought this was self-evident. The average life-expectancy for someone in their 90s is going to be much shorter, whether of not they have dementia!The study found a nearly seven-year difference in survival between the youngest and oldest dementia patients -- 10.7 years for those aged 65 to 69 and 3.8 years for those aged 90 and older.
The usual quote for average survival post-diagnosis in the UK is 10 years, though as we know it can be much longer, or much shorter.The average survival time after dementia diagnosis was 4.6 years for women and 4.1 years for men.
