The Younger Onset Dementia Service in Cardiff was launched in 2011. Its aim was to develop and provide age appropriate support for anyone living in the Cardiff and Vale area diagnosed with dementia before the age of 65.
The service is a multidisciplinary team comprised of professionals from a range of health disciplines including Nursing, Psychiatry, Psychology, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Dietetics and Speech and Language Therapy. The service also provides Family Support Workers and Dementia Care Advisors.
The Young Onset Dementia Service works in close collaboration with voluntary sector services such as the Alzheimer’s Society. Through joint working a wide network of support has been established.
