Younger people with dementia

Produced by NHS Health Scotland in partnership with Alzheimer Scotland and the Scottish Dementia Working Group, ‘Younger people with dementia: living well with your diagnosis’ DVD is designed for the person who has just been diagnosed with younger onset dementia (dementia under the age of 65) and for the family and friends of the person diagnosed.

The DVD provides insights and information from younger people with dementia and their family carers about their journey to diagnosis and which resources are available to support living well with dementia. The DVD aims to provide information on: 

  • helping people in the early stages of diagnosis to understand more about their illness
  • sharing experiences around how to ‘live well’ after a diagnosis of dementia, as well as offering practical advice on coping with its effects
  • suggesting where people with younger onset dementia, their families and carers can go for further support.

You can view the five short clips which make up the DVD from the playlist below.

Longer video clips of the topics covered within this DVD are available on the NHS Health Scotland YouTube channel. You can also download the accompanying booklet, Younger people with dementia

A British Sign Language version of these video clips is also available on the NHS Health Scotland YouTube channel
