The purpose of this study is to identify the tendency of media reports on the dementia management policy in Korea and to suggest policy implications such as prevention of dementia, improvement of awareness, and management of dementia through network analysis. We analyzed the linkage structure between the main texts centered on the number of citations of the main language related to the dementia management policy and the centrality and mediation as the research procedures and methods. As a result of the analysis, first, a 'micro' perspective is needed to explain practically. Second, it is desirable to understand the dementia management policy in the context of community. Third, the network structure of key words such as 'dementia management policy' suggests the possibility of research study in academic research in future research. Therefore, the phenomenon of dementia management policy will contribute to the direction of future dementia management policy, not local or temporary.
