What is young onset dementia? What differences are there to late onset dementia? How do young onset dementia symptoms develop?
Receiving a diagnosis of dementia aged under 65 is relatively rare and information about young onset dementia and age-appropriate support can be hard for people to find.
Younger people experience different symptoms to older people and the impact on their lives is likely to be significantly greater. Most people affected by the condition know no one else in their situation, so may feel very isolated.
