The Alzheimer's Australia NSW blog *Younger Onset Dementia and ME*

*The Alzheimer's Australia NSW blog *Younger Onset Dementia and ME* is a place for people to connect with others, to get information and helpful suggestions.

A diagnosis of younger onset dementia can be very isolating. You may have received a diagnosis, be someone who is caring for a family member, or you may have a mum or dad with younger onset dementia. You are not alone. The National Younger Onset Dementia Key Worker Program provides individualised information and support to improve the quality of life for people with younger onset dementia and also see NSW - Younger Onset Dementia . For more information contact the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500.

Younger Onset Dementia Survey

Do you have Younger Onset Dementia or care for someone who does? We would love to hear about your experiences of services for people with younger onset dementia and their families and what support you still need.


Surveys about service and support needs for people with younger onset dementia and their families/carers - Alzheimer’s Australia NSW and the Social Policy Research Centre are conducting research into the service and support requirements of people with younger onset dementia and their families/carers. http://www.sprc.unsw.edu.au/news-and-events/younger-onset-dementia-survey-1531.html

This includes surveys about experiences of younger onset dementia services. These surveys are for people who live in NSW only.

There are separate versions of the survey for people with younger onset dementia and their families/carers. Each of these can be filled out online or in a printed copy.
