Did you know that dementia doesn’t just happen to people when they’re older? When the symptoms of dementia are presented before the age of 65, it is referred to as young or early onset dementia. At least 16,000 Canadians under the age of 65 are living with early onset dementia. The sooner a diagnosis is made, the better care can be provided. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of dementia, speak with a health care professional right away.
