The dementia Australia NSW blog *Younger Onset Dementia and ME*

*The dementia 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.

poetry book by Kate Swaffer

Love, life, loss a roller-coaster of poetry

from Kate's blog
"...My first volume of poetry Love, Life, Loss, A Roller Coaster of Poetry is now available and you can order copies via my Contact Form Page. It is a beautiful hard cover book with 88 poems. Some are not for the faint hearted, but they tell some of the stories of my life. One poem (the 88th) was written for me by my best friend Jacinta, and I have included it because it encompasses our love and friendship beautifully. It costs $25.00 plus postage and handling - see Kate's Website below or  if you are a memeber of Alzheimer's NSW you can borrow a copy by emailing
