Young onset and rarer forms of dementia
Young Onset Dementia Guidance | YoungDementia UK is guidance primarily for Dementia Support Workers / Dementia Advisors who may not usually support an individual under the age of 65 years old affected by dementia. It is intended to guide discussion with the person with dementia and their families and should be used flexibly to adapt to individual needs and circumstances; as well as a linking to other resources on the webpage e.g. videos, leaflets.
The Resources page has more information. Scroll down to Young Onset and Rarer Forms and press show more for links to resources, which includes websites and videos, such as frontotemporal dementia films.
A person with dementia is at higher risk of developing delirium, therefore you may want to print this off and discuss it with the person, as part of the dementia wellbeing plan appointment.
