Young Onset Dementia Resources for Edmonton and Area Families

Young Onset Dementia is the term used to describe people under the age of 65 years who have been diagnosed with a type of dementia. People under the age of 65 years are often still working, many are raising dependent children, and some are also caring for an elderly relative. People with Young Onset Dementia have numerous decisions to make and a range of service options to consider as their dementia progresses. They frequently report not knowing what services are available or how to access those services. This resource guide is one of several documents to give information and support to Young Onset families as they journey through the process of gaining supports and services that they need as they live with dementia.
