There are a range of forums available that may help with information and put you in touch with others living with dementia. Here are a few that may be of interest:
Alzheimer’s Australia’s Younger Onset Dementia Forum provides a place where younger people with dementia, their families, carers and friends can gather and share information. It provides a place to share your stories, connect with others in a similar situation, ask questions and share information.
Talking about Dementia is an online community where you can share your thoughts, questions and experiences.
Talking Point is Alzheimer’s Society’s (UK) online discussion forum for anyone affected by dementia. It’s a place to ask for advice, share information, join in discussions and feel supported.
Hi Marie, Thank you for contacting us. A good starting point is to call our Dementia Advisors on the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500. They are available from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday. You can also contact them via webchat via this link https://www.fightdementia.org.au/helpline/webchat. I think they would be the best place to start. Good luck. Thank you and all the best, Sarah - The Dementia Daily Team
