Who to contact


Dementia is considered ‘young onset’ when it affects people under 65 years of age.  It is also referred to as ‘early onset’ or ‘working age’ dementia.  However this is an arbitary age distinction which is becoming less relevant as increasingly services are realigned to focus on the person and the impact of the condition, not the age.
