In brief: Dementia only

Is not a mental health problem, but a physical one.
Having said that, many dementia patients also have mental health issues such as depression, hallucinations and behavioral problems. I know of no dementia only mental health units, but there are many geriatric units which are quite capable of helping patients with dementia.
