They may not be given the oppourtunity to be involved just because other's haven't got the time of day for them. Due to how dementia affects a client may mean they can not adjust to the time it is now and may be stuck in their past. This may mean they cannot understand what is being asked of them. 1.4 When caring for person with dementia we must remember they are an individual and need to be included in all
Dementia is most commonly associated with the elderly, therefore a younger person may find it more difficult to access help and advice as it is less common in younger people. They may still be working at the time of diagnosis, have financial commitments, dependant children to look after and it may have a greater impact on their social life. The younger you are the more likely you are to get an early diagnosis, meaning the individual might have a greater understanding of how dementia will affect them compared to an older person with dementia. Being diagnosed as an elderly person is different because they tend to not have as many commitments and may find it
I believe an older person is more likely to cope with the news that they have dementia better than a younger person would. Dementia in an older person is a lot more common and well known so care for them is more available. a.who have a learning disability – are at greater risk of developing dementia at a young age, particularly that suffer with Downs Syndrome. They will require specific support to understand the changes they are experiencing and to access appropriate services after diagnosis and as the dementia progresses.

That is why it is very important to observe their facial and body reaction. This means that the worker is going to miss out on a large part of communication if he/she is not paying attention to peoples facial and bodily
That is where depression comes in. The people that have a hard time dealing with the changes of life are more likely to deal with this illness. When there is no support available for these individuals with depression, it often gets overlooked since depression manifests itself in an older person as them being resistant against the aging process. The purpose of this study was to research how depression
It is important that younger people with dementia get access to a range of services to address their particular needs. There is a lack of specialised services to the under 65s, the services must be need-based not based on age. In general younger people with dementia are more likely to be at work at the time of diagnosis, have dependent children and heavy financial commitments such as paying a mortgage. They are also more likely to have a rarer form of dementia with which professionals are less familiar and find it harder to access appropriate information and support. Once diagnosed, young onset dementia sufferers may find it difficult to access
Less commonly, a non-degenerative condition may have secondary effects on brain cells, which may or may not be reversible if the condition is treated. The causes of dementia depend on the age at which symptoms begin. In the elderly population, a large majority of cases of dementia are caused by Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia or both. It is rare to have dementia in young people 1.2 Describe the types of memory impairment commonly experienced by individuals with dementia.
