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.

live outside the Stigma - by Richard Taylor


Everyone talks of the Myths and Stigmas attached to the words you have dementia, probably of this or that type. What are some of these myths and stigmas? How does someone living with the real consequences of them live with them, explain them, try everyday to over-come them within himself.


Join Richard Taylor, PhD. as he shares in life experiences living with dementia, probably of the Alzheimer's type. This is a must watch DVD both for caregivers as well as those with the symptoms of dementia.


Richard has also made the 'Be with me today' DVD



 and his book
Alzheimer's from the inside out
