In 2019, the Young Dementia Network ran a pilot project to trial young onset dementia ID cards which we designed in collaboration with our members. One card was designed for a person living with young onset, the other for family members and supporters to use when out and about.
We received excellent feedback from the people who trialled the cards, telling us they used them in places like shops, cinemas and on public transport. They told us the good thing about the cards was, 'being able to ask for help discreetly', 'knowing it’s there if needed', ' it fits in a wallet' and 'they are simple and clear.'
We delighted that we can now make these cards available to all. If you would like a card for yourself, your group or service members, please click here and select whether you would like the cards for a person with young onset dementia, or the cards for supporters, or both, and the quantity you require.
Alternatively you can download and print your own copies here.
We would really appreciate your feedback on the ID cards and would be very grateful if you could complete this short survey, click here. It only takes a few minutes to complete.
