Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be challenging at any age, however things can be considerably more complex for a younger person - particularly if you are still working, paying a mortgage or looking after a young family. Alzheimer’s WA has a range of services that can support you if you are living with younger onset dementia.
Our program staff are experienced professionals who are can provide you with the expert advice and support you need throughout your journey with dementia. We recognise the complexities of dementia, specifically younger onset dementia, and have staff members with considerable expertise and experience dedicated to supporting our younger clients.
Younger Onset Dementia and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
People who are under 65 and have a diagnosis of dementia broadly meet the eligibility criteria to access support through the NDIS. Individual eligibility is determined by the NDIS and if eligible, your NDIS plan will identify the reasonable and necessary supports to assist you.
Alzheimer’s WA has specialist staff who support people under 65 to understand the NDIS process and how you can access support. We are also an NDIS provider so once you have a plan approved and supports identified you can access services through Alzheimer’s WA.
For those in areas where the NDIS has not yet rolled out we also have Home and Community Care funding to support people under 65 years of age to access support while they wait for the NDIS.
For more information about our services and how we can support you please call our Customer Support Team on 1300 66 77 88 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
