YoungDementia UK is dedicated to ensuring people affected by young onset dementia have the best opportunity to live well. We are based in Oxfordshire and provide support for younger people and their families within the county and its adjoining areas.
Dementia is young onset when it affects people of working age, usually between 30 and 65 years old. They experience a progressive decline in their ability to think, reason, communicate and remember and their personality, behaviour and mood can also change. The condition occurs at a time in people?s lives when they are likely to still be working, have financial responsibilities and children or parents to care for.
We understand and respond to the physical, emotional, financial and social challenges of having dementia in the prime of life.
