Understanding the diagnosis and progression of young onset dementia and the impact on families and relationships
Dementia Pathfinders is hosting a FREE networking event, on 30th September 2015, from 2pm until 5pm, at Hillside Church, 37 Worple Road, Wimbledon, London SW19 4JZ
The event is suitable for health and social care professionals, people living with dementia and other conditions, relatives and family carers, community organisations and others with an interest in health and wellbeing.
Dr Jeremy Isaacs, Consultant Neurologist at St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will be speaking about the epidemiology, clinical features of young onset dementia and the work of the cognitive neurology team at St George’s Hospital.
The event will also see the launch of a new publication: a guide to the support needs of people living with young onset dementia. This publication was produced as an outcome of a Department of Health funded project which led to the development of an educational programme for the social care workforce focused on meeting the needs of people with young onset dementia and their families.
Julia Burton-Jones, author of the resource guide, will be speaking along with a number of people living with young onset dementia and family carers.
