Support Groups give you an opportunity to meet with others in a similar situation to share experiences, learn new ideas for skills for living with dementia and engaging in mutual problem solving.
Younger Onset Dementia
A diagnosis of younger onset dementia can be very isolating.
You may have received a diagnosis, be someone who is caring for a family member, or you may have a mum or dad with younger onset dementia. You are not alone.

Safely Home is a joint partnership between Dementia Australia NSW and the Missing Persons Unit of the NSW Police Force.
