Younger onset dementia
There is a common perception that dementia is related to ageing, but this is not always the case. Younger onset dementia is defined as dementia diagnosed before age 65. It can be diagnosed very early in someone’s 50’s, 40’s, or even as early as 30’s. Learn about the ‘Wellbeing’ model of dementia and how to support someone who has younger onset dementia to live well.
