Young onset dementia

Information and resources for people receiving a diagnosis of dementia aged under 65.

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.

Although younger people experience similar symptoms to older people with dementia, due to their age, the impact on their lives and family is significantly different. And most people affected by the condition know no one else in their situation, so may feel very isolated.
