Dementia not only affects adults later in life but people in their 40s and 50s. A diagnosis under the age of 65 is commonly referred to as “young onset”. People living with young onset dementia have unique challenges compared with those diagnosed later in life. This ground breaking webinar is your opportunity to hear directly from two women living with young onset dementia about their experiences working with the health care system – both challenges and successes. Facilitated by Dr Carole Cohen, geriatric psychiatrist, and featuring Faye Forbes and Mary Beth Wighton, you will hear firsthand their lived experiences and learn tips on how you can improve your care of people with young onset dementia.
