My daughter ,who has Down's syndrome and other problems, has recently been diagnosed with dementia too.We thought seven years ago that she was sliding into dementia,but because of all the other problems related to Downs,e,g depression ,mental illness etc ...they had to be eliminated before a diagnosis was made! She was only 32 yrs old at onset and now is 39yrs old ( monday!) How can the Alzheimers society help us? Have you a special section that deals with L/D? We have made a fairly large number of phone calls to the A .S. ,but it seems that severe learning disability does not 'belong' in your society!Though certainly the people i have spoken to appear willing to give info and are very pleasant. Can you please clarify this? We have been told that 'the working age dementia group is NOT for people like her! We are SO isolated!!
