Young Onset Dementia
The common understanding is that dementia in its various forms happens with older people over 65 years of age.
With over 900,000 cases formally diagnosed with even more not been formally diagnosed the number is estimated to be 1.5 million active cases in the UK. There are 70,800 cases of younger persons dementia with a similar number at best estimates that are not formally diagnosed.
We provide separate communities for the younger people as this allows for a slightly different approach based on their age, likes and dislikes and even down to food choices, decoration, and different types of stimulation.
Dementia effects younger people in the same way as older individuals but other less common causes do exist
