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.

Tracy & Jess: living with Early Onset Alzheimer's

Of the millions of people living with Alzheimer's disease, only 5 to 10 percent develop symptoms before age 65. Experts estimate that some 500,000 people in their 30's, 40's, and 50's have Alzheimer's disease or related dementia. "Tracy & Jess: Living with Early Onset Alzheimer's" is the amazing story of two women diagnosed with the disease at early ages. The film focuses on the challenges and triumphs of Tracy, Jess, and their families.
