Young Dementia Thematic Group
Verified service

The Young Dementia Thematic Group is a National Alzheimer’s Society group dedicated to people with a diagnosis of Young Onset Dementia. It is part of our Dementia Voice project which focusses on offering opportunities to people affected by dementia to use their personal views, experiences and ideas to help shape the work that the Alzheimer's Society and its partners do. The difficulties and obstacles faced by those living with a diagnosis of Young Onset vary hugely and are entirely unique- the group recognises this and intends to utilise this to help local and national services better understand how to make positive changes and a real difference. The group also offers elements of peer support in a warm and welcoming group that truly understands.
