Young onset dementia resources

We have gathered together a collection of blogs, books, films and publications in this section that we hope will offer additional reading and information for people who want to know more about, or have an interest in, young onset dementia.

Whilst not all of the content has been created by Dementia UK, we hope to provide a platform where people can find and share young onset dementia related resources that may help, inspire or interest others.

In addition, the Young Dementia Network which is hosted by Dementia UK, has created a number of useful resources including a personal checklist for members of the public who are concerned about signs and symptoms of young onset dementia, leaflets for GP surgeries and diagnostic clinics and a decision-making guide for GPs.

Dementia UK has a series of free information leaflets, including a number that are young onset dementia related. They are all written by our dementia specialist Admiral Nurses and have been put together in response to the questions we hear on our Helpline and in the community. You can read, download or request paper copies of our leaflets here.
