Younger Onset Dementia is available for persons under age 65. Consumers are catered for with an individual flexible service option.
Services provided include activities for people, designed to develop, maintain or support the capacity for independent living and social interaction which are conducted in a day centre setting. Support plans are tailored to meet the individual's requests and needs.
Such services provide valuable social support to people with Younger Onset Dementia and the programs often directly or indirectly provide emotional support to the carers. Transport is also provided as part of this program.
A formal diagnosis of dementia is not required to attend this project.
