See Flyer under "Documents" below to find registration links.
Dementia is considered “young-onset” when it affects people under the age of 65. Younger people living with dementia often face a broad range of unique challenges that impact their lives in a significantly different way than their older counterparts.
Younger people may be less likely to experience memory loss as one of the early symptoms and are more likely to still be working when they are diagnosed. They are often caring for children and/or aging parents and have significant financial commitments such as a mortgage.
In this session, you will learn first-hand from persons living with young-onset dementia. This session will also include the interactive-story telling performance by people living with dementia called A Journey with Dementia Minds. This performance is an original script that was co-created by the performers.
