Younger Onset Dementia (YOD) impacts on thousands of Australians - from the immediate family and friends to those in the community who, often by chance, have to cope with YOD sufferers.
Younger Onset Dementia can begin to affect people in their 40's - in the prime of their lives.
The five-chapter, 38 page online booklet produced by the Neuroscience Research Australia (formerly Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute (POWMRI), is based on 20 years of research and is designed to help those living with or exposed to people showing early onset dementia signs as well as those confirmed to already have symptoms.
One of the aims of FRONTIER is to provide information and support for patients, carers and their families.
