If you have just joined Dementia Talking Point, a very warm welcome to you.

You are reading our Younger people with dementia and their carers forum. If you have dementia and are under 65, or are caring for a person with dementia who is under 65, you may find the following information useful:

Young onset information

Discussion for younger carers in their late teens and twenties

Support with familial Alzheimer’s disease

Younger people with dementia – information on our main website

Introducing yourself

When you're ready to introduce yourself, and perhaps ask a question, you might like to post a message in the main support forum. This can be a good place to start posting, because it tends to be the busiest area of Dementia Talking Point. To post a message in this section, just click on the New Thread button.

If you’d prefer to post in the Younger people with dementia and their carers forum, you can do so by clicking here.

If you included information about your situation when you registered, other members may have missed that, so by all means do repeat it when you post.

More information about how to post a message can be found here.

You might also like to visit the Members' Area, which includes a Tea Room for relaxing and unwinding, as well as a section for members' poetry. And our ‘Information and Resources’ section is full of good advice about questions that often crop up - for example, our Really Useful Resources thread.
