House of Lords event

On the 9th December 2014 members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, representatives from charities (including Alzheimer’s Research UK) and other health related bodies (such as the College of Optometrists and Care Quality Commission) gathered to raise awareness of young onset dementia at an event we co-hosted with Baroness Sally Greengross in the House of Lords. Here’s the information we gave attendees to take away – please share it with others to raise awareness of young onset dementia.

Information about young onset dementia

For this event, we created a document entitled ‘An introduction to young onset dementia‘ (opens pdf) which outlines what young onset dementia is, how it is caused, key issues and mentions relevant support groups and research opportunities.
