On Wednesday 16th March 2022, we continued our series of young onset dementia webinars with Dementia, Disabili-tea and Hope. This webinar discussed the work being carried out by One Dementia Voice, of which the Young Dementia Network is an active member.
It was hosted by Philly Hare, co-Director of Innovations in Dementia, who was in conversation with two people living with young onset dementia – Nigel Hullah and Wendy Mitchell.
During the webinar we discussed the importance of human – and disability rights – to people with young onset dementia and explained how legal rights and the promotion of ‘reasonable adjustments’ can be made to make life easier and more accessible for them.
We addressed common questions about this approach, and offered practical tips relevant to each and every one of us, whatever our role.
Our monthly webinars bring together Young Dementia Network members, people living with young onset dementia, family members, professionals and people interested in young onset dementia to create an opportunity to connect, support and inform each other
