Accessing services and support can make a real and positive difference to someone with dementia and their family. Some services are provided by local authorities, others can be arranged through GPs.
The impact of early-onset Alzheimer’s can be significant – people are often working and may have young families. There are organisations that offer advice, information, care, and practical and emotional support.
YoungDementia UK can advise on specialised, person-centred services for people with young-onset dementia and their families. If you would like to contact them for support via email or telephone, fill in the form on their website here www.youngdementiauk.org/need-advice
For a full list of organisations, visit our support page here. You can also ask your doctor.
This leaflet aims to give an introduction to early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. It’s for anyone who might be worried about themselves or somebody else.
