YOUNG ONSET DEMENTIA SUPPORT

A weekly support group for working age adults living with Young Onset Dementia in Kirklees. 

About Our Young Onset Dementia Support Groups

People living with young onset dementia require dedicated age-appropriate services able to meet their needs and expectations, which are often different to many services tailored towards older people.  This often means they find themselves in the ‘gaps’ between most services provided.  The aim of this service is to try and fill this ‘gap’.

 

Our vision is to provide a base to offer relevant activities and a place to maintain and develop skills, interests and hobbies in a friendly and supportive environment.  We offer a once weekly activity/social meeting which will also include getting out and about in the community.  Members and family will also have the option to access specialist advice, peer support and signposting to other relevant services.

 

A team of staff and volunteers have the passion and commitment together with other partners to provide this much needed service to enable all users to continue to live well as valuable members of our communities.
