We host a monthly series of FREE young onset dementia webinars which began in October 2020. They bring together Young Dementia Network members, people living with young onset dementia, family members, professionals working in the field and people interested in young onset dementia to create an opportunity to connect, support and inform each other.
We are taking a break for the summer but plan to restart our webinars in October 2022 with a new theme – improving the experience of young onset dementia diagnosis. Please check back for more information or sign up to receive our newsletters here to find out the details of our upcoming webinars. Catch up with past webinars via the links below.
