On Wednesday 19th May 2021, we continued our series of young onset dementia webinars, Intensi-tea – stress and distress in dementia.
The webinar helped the audience to understand why a person living with young onset dementia may experience increased feelings of stress and distress, and how you might help them manage these feelings.
Panellists from Dementia Carers Count – Lissy Edwards, Speech and Language Therapist / Dementia Carers Services Practitioner and Sue Hinds, Head of Services were joined by Jill and Sarah, family carers.
They shared their experiences especially focusing on how they maintain their own health and well-being.
You can view the slides from the webinar here, and the chat here.
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
