Younger people with dementia

People diagnosed with dementia under the age of 65 are often described as 'younger people with dementia' by health and social care professionals. The symptoms of dementia may be similar regardless of a person's age, but younger people may have different needs, and require some different support.

There are more than 40,000 younger people with dementia in the UK.
