Service for People with Young Onset Dementia and their Families

YoungDementia UK offers integrated services to meet the complex needs of people with young onset dementia and their families from diagnosis to post-bereavement. A trained support worker partners the person with dementia, developing a trusting relationship, sharing chosen activities within their local community and ensuring the present if fully lived. Flexible support is tailored to the family’s circumstances, including information, practical and emotional guidance. To combat the isolation, a lively monthly Café encourages a welcoming community for all. Good practice is shared with other young onset dementia services through the website (www.youngdementiauk.org), and by modelling our approach to other organizations.
