Younger Onset Dementia Support

Dementia can happen to anyone – including people under the age of 65. Often, people do not expect younger people to have dementia, so it can come with unique social, emotional and financial challenges.

For example, you or the person may be:
– in full-time employment
– actively raising a young family
– financially responsible for a family
– physically strong and healthy.

You don’t have to navigate these challenges alone. Dementia Australia has an online hub of useful information, resources, support to help you live well with dementia.

NDIS support coordination
Dementia Australia is a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) registered service provider. If you are living with younger onset dementia and need help coordinating your supports and services funded under your NDIS plan, we can help.

Your support coordinator can:
– teach you how to navigate the NDIS
– help you understand and manage your plan
– assess all your support options and help you choose the best provider for you
– negotiate services on your behalf, including prices, service agreements and bookings
– Work with your local area coordinator and other providers to ensure you get the best value from your NDIS plan
– assist you with any problems that arise
– help you prepare for your annual plan review.

To find out more, call us via the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500.
