The following includes advice and resource for those with a Young Onset Dementia (diagnosis under age 65).
On 1 November 2020, YoungDementia UK merged with Dementia UK. More information about the merger can be found here.
YoungDementia UK is the dedicated national charity for younger people with dementia and their families.
Over 42,000 people diagnosed with dementia in the UK are aged between 30 and 65. It is a life-changing condition to have at any age, but when you are younger and believe you have a long and full life ahead of you, the impact is significantly different.
We are committed to helping those affected by this challenging condition to adapt to their changed lives as well as possible by providing information, support and opportunities to connect with others.
Join our online singing group where you can meet new people in a friendly, fun and social environment. Singing can improve your brain activity, wellbeing and mood. You don't need to be a good singer to benefit! Join us for fun vocal warm-ups and sing a wide variety of familiar and new songs.
