The pages in this section outline the
unique challenges that younger people with dementia face (versus older
individuals – over age 65). We also provide some basic resources.
Since each individual and family situation is unique, we have provided
a variety of options for solutions. Also included are basic resources
and links to useful information.
Active employment at the time of
dementia vs. retirement
Caring for young children in the
home vs. relationship with adult children
Navigating the health care system
for appropriate treatment vs. geriatric care
financial responsibilities vs. more stable financial
Spouse/partner who is working vs.
spouse/partner who may be able to provide full-time care
