Are you living with young onset dementia, or are you a family member or friend of someone who is? Would you be willing to share your experiences of young onset dementia to help others?
Throughout 2024, the Young Dementia Network will be focusing its efforts on trying to improve the experience of diagnosis and raising awareness of young onset dementia. We are running a campaign to gather evidence for these much-needed improvements and would love to hear your experiences and thoughts.
Please answer our three short questions using the form below. If you would prefer to send your answers to us in video format, you’ll find instructions underneath the web form on how to send record and send clips to us.
Please answer the following three questions:
A guide to filming yourself using a smart phone
Hold the phone upright (portrait) with the screen facing you and select ‘selfie mode’
Either rest the phone on a surface at eye level or hold it in your hand – whatever is easiest
Film somewhere well lit, facing a window in the daytime is best
Record somewhere quiet and away from loud noises
Aim to have your face in the centre of the screen and not too close, making sure that your head and shoulders are shown on screen
When you have recording, watch your video with sound on to check it
