Younger Onset Dementia is used to describe any form of dementia that develops in people under the age of 65. It’s often misunderstood and has differing complexities compared to older people living with dementia.
Understanding the experiences and needs of young people living with dementia, recognising the barriers to best practice care and embracing pragmatic strategies to quality care, are all key to ensuring people living with Younger Onset Dementia live meaningful and fulfilling lives.
- Understand the care needs and preferences of young people living with dementia and hear about some experiences with the NDIS and aged care sector to date.
- Learn specific strategies to improve services for young people living with dementia and their families, including collaboration across the aged and disability sectors.
- Discover the educational toolkit ‘Prescription for Life’ and learn how and where to access it.
