Dear colleagues, a clinically informed decision has been made to postpone our morning and afternoon sessions ‘Dementia United Young Onset and Rare Dementia Workshops’ both of which were due to take place next Thursday 19 March 2020.
We apologies for any inconvenience caused and will be back in touch as soon as we are clearer on a rescheduled date.
This event is in support of the Young Onset and Rare Dementia Project that is part of the Dementia United (DU) programme. DU is the Greater Manchester Dementia Strategy that supports joined up working across the region.
A younger person is much more likely to have a rare form of dementia that can cause problems not only with memory but movement, vision, language and personality. Their dementia is also more likely to be hereditary. This can make diagnosis more challenging and when a diagnosis is made the person often has different needs and requires some different support to someone who is older.
