Free webinar: supporting young people with Dementia

A free dementia webinar will take place on Wednesday 28 October at 2pm. Go along to learn more about dementia in young people of working age.

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 ages of 30 and 65. Having dementia when you’re of working age  creates a new and different set of challenges, some of which will be addressed in this webinar.

This webinar will explore:

  • the needs of younger people affected by dementia
  • what dementia may look like
  • what you can do to support a loved one with dementia in their younger years.

The advice you receive will be beneficial for anyone with early dementia, 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. The webinar will leave you feeling better informed about a range of issues affecting younger people with dementia.

Speakers will include:

  • Led by Isobel Jones from Alive Activities
  • Tony Hall Chair of Bristol Dementia Action Alliance
  • Joanne O’Neill – Former Dementia Care Manager of The Limes Day Support Centre
  • Mark Poarch – Chief Executive of BRACE

You can book your free place at the webinar on the BRACE website.

Please note this webinar was carried out in October 2020.
