Young Dementia Oxfordshire is a young onset dementia service provided by Dementia UK.
It offers face-to-face, telephone and email support for people living with young onset dementia (where symptoms develop before the age of 65) and their family members in Oxfordshire via a team of Young Onset Dementia Advisors. If you or your family member live outside Oxfordshire, please contact our Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline.
They offer practical and emotional support and guidance not just about dementia, but also around financial and legal matters, employment, benefits and planning for the future. In addition, they offer tailored support to help people who are newly diagnosed to adapt to the changes that they may be experiencing, plan for the future, and offer emotional support in coming to terms with a life-changing diagnosis.
They run a busy programme of monthly face-to-face and online groups which provide valuable opportunities to meet and connect with others in a similar situation.
Young Dementia Oxfordshire send out monthly emails to keep members up to date about upcoming events and groups. They also have a private Facebook community group, exclusively for Young Dementia Oxfordshire members.
Young Dementia Oxfordshire’s Young Onset Dementia Advisors can be contacted by phone or email and can meet you at home, at the Cognitive Disorders Clinic, at one of their face-to-face groups or at a place of your choosing.
