Dementia which occurs under the age of 65 is often referred to as early onset or younger onset dementia. There are approximately 4,000 people in Ireland with early onset dementia.

 Developing dementia at an early age means you may need to consider things like employment and the impact on young children. You and your family are not alone. You can get support to help you to take the steps you need to take to live well with dementia and plan for the future.
