@ngyose, as it turns out, Mayo Clinic researcher, Rosebud Roberts, conducted a study about deteriorating sense of smell and dementia about 5 years ago. Here are links to the study and an article about the study
– Association Between Olfactory Dysfunction and Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer Disease Dementia https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamaneurology/fullarticle/2469511

Hopefully this information will help support your advocacy in improving the early detection of dementia among health professionals in your area.
