Coming to terms with – and managing – younger onset dementia isn’t easy. If you’re under the age of 65 and have been diagnosed, Dementia Australia can help. We also offer valuable support for family or friends who are looking to help.
Why support is important
At Dementia Australia, it's our mission to improve your quality of life, so you can live well with younger onset dementia. Our information, advice and support can help you understand your diagnosis, cope with changes in behaviour, make adjustments to your routine and plan for your future.
Who we help
We are committed to supporting:
- People interested in and living with all types of dementia – including younger onset dementia
- Families and carers of people living with dementia and younger onset dementia
- Individuals and communities seeking to better understand younger onset dementia.
Our services are available to individuals, couples, families and groups, aged care and community care professionals.
We also provide help and resources for people from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
We deliver services face-to-face, by telephone, or online, to people across Australia, depending on your needs or location.
