Supporting Young People with Dementia

Free Online Webinars – 28th September at 10am and 28th October at 2pm

Dementia is not just an older person’s condition; it also affects people in
younger life. It is estimated there are over 40,000 people under the age of 65
living with a dementia diagnosis in the UK.

Early onset dementia can affect people between the age of 30 and 65. Having dementia whilst at working age presents new and different set of challenges to living well with dementia, some of which will be addressed in these webinars.

During these two, one hour – FREE webinars we will explore the needs of
younger people affected by dementia, what dementia may look like, and what you can do to support a loved one with dementia in their younger years.

The two webinars will be hosted by three dementia charities who have come together to form the Bristol Dementia Charity Network. The advice you receive will be beneficial for all, not just those living in the Bristol area.

Over the course of an hour you will get the very best advice from the
experts at Alive Activities, BRACE and Bristol Dementia Action
Alliance. You will leave the webinar feeling informed and empowered in your newly found understanding of dementia in younger years.

Speakers will include:

  • Joanna O’Neil – Former Dementia Care Manager of The Limes Day Support Centre
  • Mark Poarch –  Chief Executive of BRACE
  • Plus others – tba
  • Hosted by Tony Hall, Chair of Bristol Dementia Action Alliance
